Problem Description:

When using the CFLDAP tag, we have noticed that on certain responses CFLDAP is injecting a backslash into the response.  We have run a test harness on CF 9 and the problem is not present

Steps to Reproduce:

LDAP query using CFLDAP

Actual Result:

cn=srv\=_sipfederationtls._tcp,, ou=dns,

Expected Result:

cn=srv=_sipfederationtls._tcp,, ou=dns, 

Any Workarounds:

None that we have found to stop it happening, we have had to put specific code in place to strip this slash out.  We suspect it is something to do with the format of the query being  


However, this is a valid LDAP query.



I have tried it with couple of LDAP servers both are storing the LDAP DN with the escaped equals character in DN. LDAP standard says to escape few special characters with backslash. Looks like the LDAP servers following the same. The below screenshot is from Apache Directory server.   !image-2019-05-13-16-57-07-832.png!
