Adiscon products and the Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine
Created 2003-07-24 by Lutz Koch.
How do MSDE security risks relate to Adiscon products?
As a general policy, MSDE is *not* installed with any of our products.
Even though this may cause some additional setup work for customers, we have decided to do so because of vulnerability issues of MSDE. If you decide to install MSDE however, we think that you should be aware that you install a potentially dangerous, large piece of software.
If you are concerned on MSDE security, you may want to use MySQL instead of MSDE. We do offer full support for MySQL.
