    Security Notes

      * The linked OpenSSL library for Connector/Python
        Commercial has been updated to version 1.0.1q. Issues fixed in
        the new OpenSSL version are described at This change
        does not affect Oracle-produced MySQL Community builds of
        Connector/Python, which use the yaSSL library instead. The change
        also does not affect connections made using any pure-Python
        implementation of Connector/Python, for which the version of
        OpenSSL used is whatever is installed on the system.

    Bugs Fixed

      * Connector/Python failed to establish connections using
        the cleartext client-side authentication plugin for accounts

        Daniël van Eeden for the patch. (Bug #22873551, Bug #80609)

      * A potential SQL injection vector was eliminated. (Bug #22529828)

        #21879914, Bug #79835, Bug #22494320)

      * For connections made with consume_results=True,
        consume_results was reset to False after callproc() execution
        failure. (Bug #21879859) References: This issue is a regression
        of: Bug #21492815.

      * In connections for which compress=True, LOAD DATA LOCAL
        INFILE statements produced "Packets out of error" errors.  (Bug
