 Hello, I am using 'WordPress 4.4' and my browser is chrome 47.0 .[[BR]]

 At first ,I forgot my password , and click 'reset password' .[[BR]]

 And then , my mailbox recived a email like
 [[Image(http://oi67.tinypic.com/21loaoh.jpg)]]. [[BR]]

 I click the reset link and notice the link attached with a '>' charactor.
 (So my reset link is  'https://blog.restonce.com/wp-
 login.php?action=rp&key=rMBV4nFgcNSGxPQACcOW&login=readme%3E'. )
 As you expected , reset password error .[[BR]]

 I found the bug at 'https://github.com/WordPress/WordPress/blob/master/wp-
 login.php#L327' :
 $message .= '<' . network_site_url("wp-
 login.php?action=rp&key=$key&login=" . rawurlencode($user_login), 'login')
 . ">\r\n";
 : the link attached the UserName and '>' charactor. [[BR]]

 So I suggest to insert a blank character before the last '>' to separate
 them and fix this bug.
