BUG #: 484 (Oracle)


The Microsoft Oracle Driver version may return views that belong to 'SYS' and 'SYSTEM' users for SQLTables with the 'VIEW' table type specified. The 'SYS' and 'SYSTEM' views are returned even if the user does not have permission to the system views.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft Oracle Driver version

A supported fix is now available, but has not been fully regression-tested and should be applied only to systems experiencing this specific problem. Unless you are severely impacted by this specific problem, Microsoft recommends that you wait for the next Service Pack that contains this fix. Contact Microsoft Technical Support for more information.
