SS-2018-018: Database credentials disclosure during connection failure

Medium (?)
Versions Affected:
silverstripe/framework:^3.7, silverstripe/framework:^4.0
Versions Fixed:
silverstripe/framework:3.7.1, silverstripe/framework:4.0.5, silverstripe/framework:4.1.3, silverstripe/framework:4.2.2, silverstripe/framework:4.3.0
Release Date:

When running SilverStripe 3.7 or 4.x in dev mode with the mysqli database driver, there is a potential to disclose the connection details.

We have blacklisted the sensitive parts of the connection information from being included in dev mode stack traces when database errors occur.
