      Description

      Liferay DXP does not obfuscate password reminder answers, which allows attackers to use man-in-the-middle or shoulder surfing attacks to steal user's password reminder answers.

      The following portal property has been added:

          # Set this to true to show reminder query answer in plain text.
          #
          # Env: LIFERAY_USERS_PERIOD_REMINDER_PERIOD_QUERIES_PERIOD_DISPLAY_PERIOD_ANSWER_PERIOD_IN_PERIOD_PLAIN_PERIOD_TEXT
          #
