Hello Team,

Greetings!!!.

I have a web app with a password recovery option. There is a secret
question and if the user enters the correct answer to the secret
question, the username and password is provided to the user.

If the password recover page / module allows multiple tries
(brute-force and no CAPTCHA or similar mechanism), can we categorize
this vulnerability under "Broken Authentication and Session
Management" or does this fall under any other Vulnerability Category /
OWASP Top 10?

Thanks in advance.

ch33rs,
