Wiebke Pätzold commented on OFBIZ-11244:
----------------------------------------

I created a patch for the framework as well as for the plugins so the security question should
be removed everywhere.

> After our discussion in dev ML at https://markmail.org/message/2dhc4al4adwgvl7z we will
remove this feature. This [~paulfoxworthy]'s remark is notably important:
> bq. Security is only as good as its weakest link ( https://www.schneier.com/essays/archives/2005/02/the_curse_of_the_sec.html)
, and security questions can be a real weakness. Any organisation using OFBiz that really
hates passwords could look at security keys from Yubico or the like.
