MySQL 5.1 Plugin Development

csciborg Re:Potential Security Nightmare (44 comments)

From your experience with the platform, are there any safeguards in place that prevent plugins from breaking out of their place in memory and reeking havoc? Are the plugins allowed to modify the underlying data structure or is there a specific interface they use to access the data?

csciborg Potential Security Nightmare (44 comments)
