APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Persist Security Info if enabled allows applications to view
    sensitive information that was passed in the connection string
    like the password. The password is encrypted.  This APAR will
    ensure the connection string password is not encrypted
    

Local fix

  • A possible workaround is to use a string variable to store the
    OLE DB connection string and pass this string variable while
    opening OLE DB connection and use the string variable for
    further processing in application code instead of using the OLE
    DB connection object string property.
