mysql database supports password with character "}" but odbc driver does not. 

create user abc identified by ab}c

Login through mysql command line is allowed. But not successful through 5.3.7 odbc driver. 

"Connection Failed" Invalid connection string attribute

How to repeat:
create an user in mysql abc identified by ab}c

then try to connect through odbc driver. 

"Connection Failed" Invalid connection string attribute
