Description:
"Users and Privileges" -> "User Accounts"

By default there is a 'root'@'::1' user in a 5.6 install. 

But changing the password for this user results in:
"Invalid host specification: The host specification "::1" is not valid. Please correct it and try again."

The tooltip for this field shows:
"Host name contains invalid characters"

How to repeat:
Try to modify a user wih the 'Limit to Hosts Matching = "::1"' set.

Suggested fix:
Allow IPv6 adresses.

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Workbench 6.2.5 release, and here's the changelog entry:

Under "User Accounts", attempting to change the password for the default
'root'@'::1' user would fail and with "Invalid host specification: The
host specification "::1" is not valid. Please correct it and try again.".

Thank you for the bug report.
