case sensitive search?

Hello,

I have a login field in the db. when I give find_by_login('Abc'). And
there is no login as 'Abc' but there is 'abc', then it returns that it
exists. Shouldn't this be case sensitive by default? If not then how can
I do a case sensitive search?

That's a database thing. E.g. for MySQL:

So, how do I get around it when using mysql & find_by?

If you want to use find_by you'll need to alter your table. Otherwise you can write some custom SQL to do the select. Read the page I linked to in my previous post.
