First, you should always hover over the highlight and preview it before you apply the Redaction. If it is wrong, delete it and start again.
Second, if you are having trouble with it selecting too much, then Command + Drag (Control + Drag if you are on Windows) to make a more precise selection for the Redaction before hitting Apply.
Does this help?
I too am having a similar problem - when I select to redact from a document, after applying the redaction, I am left with random black marks on other document pages.

This can happen with PDF files that were created in a problematic manner. I believe I saw this happening with GhostScript files.
The only solution is to completely re-create them using Acrobat, ie export each page to an image file and then create a new PDF file from those images.
yes many are having this same issue - no answer yet from Adobe:(
