The following error:
is thrown by confluence when your try to save a page with bullet points copied from an external source (Pdf,etc).
It appears to be directly related to this MySQL limitation: http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=28853
We should handle this gracefully since it is a known limitation for MySQL.
Note: This errors can also happen in the following situations:
- Restoring an XML backup into a MySQL database
- Attempting to log into Confluence
For the login failure, the error message will look like this:
Use XML cleaner from this KB.

If you are seeing the Incorrect string value errors for the /dologin.action requests, proceed as follows:
- Find the offending groups on the AD side and remove the 4-byte characters from the description based on the memberships of the user that cannot log in, or
- Change the Description attribute to the CN instead on the directory settings in Confluence
