Error description

  • When using a connector written using the Connector API, when
    property values are passed in to the connector that contain
    characters that are not part of the 7bit ASCII codepage the
    length of the property string may be miscalculated causing
    memory corruption. This may cause unpredictable behavior or
    abends in unrelated areas of the product.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:

    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When using a connector written using the Connector API, if
    property values are passed into the connector that contain
    characters that are not part of the 7bit ASCII codepage then the
    length of the property string may be miscalculated causing
    memory corruption.
    
    This problem can cause unpredictable behaviour or abends in
    unrelated areas of the product.
    
    There are a number of resource name changes between WebSphere

    tools.mft.doc/bb23814_.htm
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Connector API now calculates the length of the parameter
    correctly in multi-byte codepages preventing the memory
    corruption and associated undefined behaviour or abends.
