For a list a list of issues resolved since general availability, refer to the fixes.

Version 8.0.2 

Enhancements
  • The default version of the OpenSSL library has been upgraded to version 1.1.1n, which fixes the following security vulnerabilities:*
    • Infinite loop in BN_mod_sqrt() reachable when parsing certificates (CVE-2022-0778)
    • BN_mod_exp may produce incorrect results on MIPS (CVE-2021-4160)

    Version 1.1.1n 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 drivers using base version B0649 and later have been enhanced to include timestamp in the internal packet logs by default. If you want to disable the timestamp logging in packet logs, set PacketLoggingOptions=1. The internal packet logging is not enabled by default. To enable it, set EnablePacketLogging=1.
  • 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.
  • For UNIX/Linux, a Password Encryption Tool, called ddencpwd, is now included with the product package. It encrypts passwords for secure handling in connection strings and odbc.ini files. At connection, the driver decrypts these passwords and passes them to the data source as required. Passwords can be encrypted for any option.
Changed Behavior
  • Support has ended for versions earlier than Informix 12.1.
