DESCRIPTION:
Some vulnerabilities have been reported in the Backend Localization
plugin for WordPress, which can be exploited by malicious people to
conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Input passed via the "kau-boys_backend_localization_language"
parameter to e.g. wp-admin/options-general.php (when "page" is set to
"kau-boys-backend-localization/backend_localization.php") or
wp-login.php is not properly sanitised in
kau-boys-backend-localization/backend_localization.php before being
returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML
and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected
site.

The vulnerability is reported in versions prior to 2.0.

SOLUTION:
Upgrade to version 2.0.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
The vendor credits Matt Fuller.
