Cannot Connect - BAD HANDSHAKE

Since upgrading MySQL Workbench to version 8.0 I receive the bad handshake error when trying to connect.
I have configured the path to the new workbench folder but still get the error and have reset the ‘Generate statistics Histograms’ to default

My errors are posted to my Weblog. Same error across three databases on different servers.
I have used the Send Log to Developers tool so you should have access to them shortly.

Hi Lol_Moor,

Thank you for the details.

Could you please try to set “Generate statistics Histograms” to “No” to check if it resolves the issue.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
