Problem Description

It has been discovered that the expiration time of a password reset link for TYPO3 backend users has never been evaluated. As a result, a password reset link could be used to perform a password reset even if the default expiry time of two hours has been exceeded.

Solution

Update to TYPO3 version 10.4.32 or 11.5.16 that fix the problem described above.
