Stop passwords from escaping characters into a OLEDB/ODBC connection string

Currently the OLEDB/ODBC connection string for a server that requires a password can be injected into with a password that contains a ; or a |.  There may be other values that cause this as well - these are the ones our company has found so far.


This lowers the security of passwords for our other systems, by limiting what characters we can use.

8 - Asteroid

I ran into the same issue with the character "{" and "@"

7 - Meteor

This is an old one but would still like to see it addressed.
