Security Notes

  • Security Fix: The linked OpenSSL library for Connector/ODBC Commercial 5.3.4 has been updated from version 1.0.1g to version 1.0.1h. Versions of OpenSSL prior to and including 1.0.1g are reported to be vulnerable to CVE-2014-0224.

Functionality Added or Changed

  • Added NULL handle checks in functions exported by Connector/ODBC.

  • Introduced a new DSN configuration option, rsakey, for specifying the full-path name of the PEM file that contains the RSA public key for using the SHA256 authentication plugin of MySQL. See Connector/ODBC DSN Configuration Options for details.
