Hello Remi,

Thank you for the report.
Verified as described.

Bug #69080 mysql-5.5.31 not compatible with openssl-1.0.0 and lower

5.5.32 also suffers same fate, i'm amazed oracle had ignored this and the simple included patch that fixes this.
[13 Jun 2013 10:40] Georgi Kodinov
This openssl version is rather old. openssl recommends that you should consider upgrading to a later one. 
Is there any obstacle with you upgrading to a recent version ?
Alternatively you can just download the binaries from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads.

> Is there any obstacle with you upgrading to a recent version ?
Enterprise Linux distribution provides backport for security fix.

I don't think upgrade to a more recent version is even thinkable on RHEL, Oracle Linux or other clones.
[13 Jun 2013 10:57] Georgi Kodinov
It's a bit unfortunate that there's no compile time way to check for the presence of that fix.
Thanks for the explanations. It's a valid bug and needs to be fixed.
[28 Jun 2013 14:39] Georgi Kodinov
I would really love if you can provide a way for us to recognize at compile time that this particular openssl version has been patched to include the fix (so I can safely #ifdef the fix that we did on our side). 
Any chance that you would consider adding a define specific to your backport of the fix in this version that we can use ? 
E.g. adding something like this : 
to openssl.h would work great.

@Georgi Kodinov sorry, I really don't understand the need.

Feel free to open a request for change on RHEL, but...

Why do you think you need this and don't simply #ifdef SSL_OP_NO_COMPRESSION
[29 Jun 2013 15:33] Hartmut Holzgraefe
I don't understand why this can't be fixed by a simple #ifdef (as in the originally attached patch) either ...
[1 Jul 2013 11:51] Georgi Kodinov

IMHO we need to be able to distinguish between an un-patched openssl 0.9.8e (that doesn't contain the fixes that you've backported to it) and your patched variant of the same library. 
Otherwise there will not be enough information to determine whether to do the fix for this ssl bug in the mysql code or not.

    Can't build mysql-5.5 latest source with openssl 0.9.8e.
    Older OpenSSL versions(prior to openssl 1.0) doesn't have 'SSL_OP_NO_COMPRESSION' defined.
    Hence the build is failing with SSL_OP_NO_COMPRESSION undeclared.
    Added a conditonal compilation for 'SSL_OP_NO_COMPRESSION'.
    i.e if 'SSL_OP_NO_COMPRESSION' is defined then have the SSL_set_options call for OpenSSL 1.0 versions.
    Have sk_SSL_COMP_zero() call for OpenSSL 0.9.8 version
