Description Jan Lieskovsky 2009-10-16 08:26:24 UTC
Quoting Debian Security Advisory for mysql-ocaml:
-------------------------------------------------

It was discovered that mysql-ocaml, OCaml bindings for MySql, was
missing a function to call mysql_real_escape_string(). This is needed,
because mysql_real_escape_string() honours the charset of the connection
and prevents insufficient escaping, when certain multibyte character
encodings are used. The added function is called real_escape() and
takes the established database connection as a first argument. The old
escape_string() was kept for backwards compatibility.
