Botan 1.10.14

  • Fix integer overflow during BER decoding, found by Falko Strenzke. This bug is not thought to be directly exploitable but upgrading ASAP is advised. (CVE-2016-9132)
  • Fix two cases where (in error situations) an exception would be thrown from a destructor, causing a call to std::terminate.
  • When RC4 is disabled in the build, also prevent it from being included in the OpenSSL provider. (GH #638)
