Changes in MySQL Connector/C 6.1.7 (2015-04-21, General Availability)

Security Notes

  • Connector/C 6.1 Commercial has been updated to use OpenSSL version 1.0.1m, which has been publicly reported as not vulnerable to CVE-2015-0286.

    Since the only change in Connector/C 6.1.7 is the inclusion of OpenSSL libraries publicly reported as unaffected by CVE-2015-0286, and since Oracle-produced MySQL Community builds use YaSSL libraries which have been reported as not affected by CVE-2015-0286, Oracle will not produce builds for Connector/C Community for version 6.1.7. This means the Community edition of Connector/C will skip version 6.1.7. (Bug #20747718)
