(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/839801/ )FIX: Hotfixes are available for MDAC 2.8
(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/836799/ )FIX: Hotfixes are available for MDAC 2.7 Service Pack 1
You connect to an Oracle database by using the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle (MSDAORA), and then you end the connection on the server side. When you open a new connection to the Oracle database from your application, you receive the following exception error message:
System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException: Unspecified error
ORA-01012: not logged on
When you end the connection to the Oracle database on the server side while using MSDAORA, the broken connection is returned to the connection pool. The connection pooling code incorrectly interacts with the ResetConnection property of MSDAORA. When this property is not supported by the provider, the pooling code incorrectly interprets that the connection is reset, and that the connection is a valid one. When the client code opens a new connection, the broken connection that was returned to the connection pool may be retrieved. Therefore, you receive the error message that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section.
