Enhancements
  • OpenSSL library 1.0.2r has been replaced with version 1.0.2u. In addition to fixing multiple new vulnerabilities, version 1.0.2u also addresses the vulnerabilities resolved by version 1.0.2r.* 
    Version 1.0.2u of the OpenSSL library fixes the following security vulnerabilities:
    • x64_64 Montgomery squaring procedure used in exponentiation with 512-bit moduli (CVE-2019-1563)
    • Padding Oracle in PKCS7_dataDecode and CMS_decrypt_set1_pkey (CVE-2019-1563)
    • Compute ECC cofactors if not provided during EC_GROUP construction (CVE-2019-1547)
    • Installation paths in diverse Windows builds (CVE-2019-1552)

    Note: By default, the driver will attempt to load version 1.1.1 of the library; however, if the library cannot be loaded, the driver will fall back to version 1.0.2.

  • The Driver Manager for UNIX/Linux has been enhanced to support setting the Unicode encoding type for applications on a per connection basis. By passing a value for the SQL_ATTR_APP_UNICODE_TYPE attribute using SQLSetConnectAttr, your application can specify the encoding at connection. This allows your application to pass both UTF-8 and UTF-16 encoded strings with a single environment handle.*
    The valid values for the SQL_ATTR_APP_UNICODE_TYPE attribute are SQL_DD_CP_UTF8 and SQL_DD_CP_UTF16. The default value is SQL_DD_CP_UTF8.
    This enhancement is available in build 07.16.0398 of the driver manager.
  • The default version of the OpenSSL library, 1.0.2r, has reached the end of its product life-cycle and has been upgraded to version 1.1.1d. In addition to receiving full update support, version 1.1.1d fixes the following security vulnerabilities:*
    • Padding Oracle in PKCS7_dataDecode and CMS_decrypt_set1_pkey (CVE-2019-1563)
    • Windows builds with insecure path defaults (CVE-2019-1552)
    • Fork Protection (CVE-2019-1549)
    • ECDSA remote timing attack (CVE-2019-1547)
    • ChaCha20-Poly1305 with long nonces (CVE-2019-1543)
    • Timing vulnerability in ECDSA signature generation (CVE-2018-0735) 

    Version 1.1.1d also addresses vulnerabilities resolved by earlier versions of the library. For more information on the installed library files, refer to the readme. 

    For more information on the OpenSSL vulnerabilities resolved by this upgrade, refer to the corresponding OpenSSL announcements at https://www.openssl.org/news/vulnerabilities-1.1.1.html.
  • The new AllowedOpenSSLVersions option determines which version of the OpenSSL library file the driver uses for data encryption when multiple versions are installed with the product. For example, when specifying a value of 1.1.1 (AllowedOpenSSLVersions=1.1.1) the driver uses the 1.1.1 version of the library that is installed with the driver.*
  • The driver has been updated with OpenSSL library version 1.0.2r:*
  • The driver has been updated with OpenSSL library version 1.0.2n.
  • The driver has been updated with OpenSSL library version 1.0.2k.*
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2j.*
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2h.*
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2g.*
  • The default OpenSSL library version has been updated to 1.0.2f.
  • The new CryptoLibName and SSLLibName connection options allow you to
    designate the OpenSSL libraries used when SSL is enabled.
  • The new MinLongVarcharSize connection option allows you to fetch
    SQL_LONGVARCHAR columns whose size is smaller than the minimum
    imposed by some third‐party applications.
  • The new VarcharThreshold connection option allows you to fetch columns
    that would otherwise exceed the upper limit of the SQL_VARCHAR type for some
    third‐party applications.
Changed Behavior
  • The following Windows platforms have reached the end of their product lifecycle and are no longer supported by the driver*:
    • Windows 8.0 (versions 8.1 and higher are still supported)
    • Windows Vista (all versions)
    • Windows XP (all versions)
    • Windows Server 2003 (all versions)

Version 7.1.5

Certifications
  • Certified with Red Hat Enterprise 7.0
  • Certified with CentOS Linux 7.0
  • Certified with Oracle Linux 7.0
  • Certified with DB2 I 7.2 (DB2 UDB V7R2 for iSeries)
Enhancements
  • The OpenSSL library was upgraded to version 1.0.0r, which fixes the CVE‐2015‐0204 (FREAK) vulnerability. See "RSA silently downgrades to EXPORT_RSA [Client] (CVE‐2015‐0204)" at https://www.openssl.org/news/secadv_20150108.txt for more information.
  • The new Crypto Protocol Version connection option allows you to specify the cryptographic protocols used when SSL is enabled. This option can be used to avoid vulnerabilities associated with SSLv3 and SSLv2, including the POODLE vulnerability.

Version 7.1.4

Certifications
  • Certified with Windows 8.1
  • Certified with DB2 11 for z/OS
Enhancements
  • The new KeepAlive connection option allows you to use TCP Keep Alive to maintain idle TCP connections.

Version 7.1.3

Certifications
  • Certified with CentOS Linux 4.x, 5.x, and 6.x
  • Certified with Oracle Linux 4.x, 5.x, and 6.x
  • Certified with DB2 V10.5 for Linux, UNIX, Windows (LUW)

Version 7.1.2

Certifications
  • Certified with Oracle Solaris 11.1

Version 7.1.1

Certifications
  • Certified with Red Hat 6.3
  • Certified with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012

Version 7.1.0

Certifications
  • DB2 V10.1 for Linux, UNIX, Windows (LUW)
  • DB2 V9.8 for Linux, UNIX, Windows (LUW)
  • Certified with DB2 v9.8 pureScale
Enhancements 
  • Returns result set metadata for parameterized statements
    that have been prepared but not yet executed.
  • Supports parameter arrays, processing the arrays as a series of
    executions, one execution for each row in the array.
  • Provides a connection option that allows you to configure
    the driver to report that it supports transactions, although Hive does not support transactions. This provides a workaround for applications that do not operate with a driver that reports transactions are not supported.
  •  The driver provides support for the following standard SQL
    functionality:
    • Create Index, Create Table, and Create View
    • Insert
    • Drop Index, Drop Table, and Drop View
