Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

In WordPress 4.3.1, there is a new bug that occurs whenever you edit a user profile.
Even when not setting a new password, the form generates and saves a new random password. We locked ourselves out of our own WP site 3 times now until we found the bug. Every time we received a password reset notification via email.
Please fix this asap, as other administrators might face the same problems.

Sincerely, MZ

Hi @LordSpackolatius, welcome to Trac!

I could not reproduce the issue. Does it still happen with all plugins disabled and a default theme (Twenty Fifteen) activated?
