We had applied these patches before but had to revert because of breakage created by other changes in the code. The difficulty is also that mariadb and MySQL use a different approach to handling TLS in the client libs. I'll make sure we'll apply this PR again and create a release ASAP. -- Michiel Op 14 jan. 2018 06:49 schreef "Daniël van Eeden via dbi-dev" < dbi-dev@...l.org>: > Hi, > > I have some serious concerns about the state of SSL/TLS in DBD::mysql. > > Issue 1: CVE-2017-10789 isn't fixed > https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2017-10789 > > Issue 2: Using DBD::mysql with MariaDB 10.0 or higher or MySQL 8.0 or > higher provides a false sense of security > > SSL_LAST_VERIFY_VERSION is set to 50799. > Any version higher than that silently ignores mysql_ssl_verify_server_cert > > This can lead to unencrypted connections even with strict SSL settings. > > Issue 3: If SSL support is unavailable but ssl options are set then these > options are silently ignored. > > issue 4: If compiled against MySQL 5.7 then SSL/TLS is used when > available, but can't be disabled.
