XF 1.4 [Security] Banned members able to change their password?

    Today reviewing my user change log I found a record of a banned member that says:

    Field Name: Password
    Old value: *******
    New value: *******

    I have tried and being banned you can't change your password.

    What could be happening here?

    I guess he used the password recovery feature? Is it possible even if the member status is "Banned"?

    Yes, he used the password recovery feature.

    There's no reason why it wouldn't/shouldn't work.

    Furthermore, banned members can still log in like any other member, so it wouldn't make sense to deny them the ability to reset their password.
