WordPress incorrectly escapes passwords when emailing to new users
|Reported by:||bklang||Owned by:|
I created a new user account today whose password contained a single-quote ( ' ). When the new user received the password it was escaped with a backslash ( \' ). This caused him to be unable to log in, not knowing he should remove the backslash.
Passwords sent to users should not be escaped.
