WARNING: Azure SQL Database implementations at risk

We got informed by Microsoft they decided to make a change in their Azure SQL Database-service that puts ADAM implementations on it, at risk:

We’ve determined that there is a security risk with user-defined SQL CLR in SQL Database. There have been no known exploits to date. In an effort to help protect the security of our customers, we have proactively suspended the use of user-defined SQL CLR. This means that user-defined SQL CLR will no longer work. (Joachim Hammer, Principal Security Program Manager for the Azure SQL Database service)

We are in close contact with Microsoft on how and when this could be fixed. 

For any customers that already use Azure SQL please contact ADAM Support if you face issues or have additional questions regarding this matter..

    Hi Emanuel,

    We're actively working on a solution together with Microsoft. In the coming weeks we'll provide an updated ADAM version that's compatible with the changes.

    Kind regards,

    Nicolas

    We are currently testing a fix to install on Azure again and to allow existing Azure installations to be upgraded to the latest ADAM version. These updates will be included in the next service pack, which we plan to release in the beginning of June.

    Kind regards,

    Nicolas
