botan-1.8.14-1.el5

FEDORA-EPEL-2012-6810 created by thm 11 years ago for Fedora EPEL 5

Update to the latest version of the 1.8 series, 1.8.14.

From the upstream changelog:

  • The malloc allocator would return null instead of throwing in the event of an allocation failure, which could cause an application crash due to null pointer dereference where normally an exception would occur.
  • Recent versions of OpenSSL include extra information in ECC private keys, the presence of which caused an exception when such a key was loaded by botan. The decoding of ECC private keys has been changed to ignore these fields if they are set.
  • AutoSeeded_RNG has been changed to prefer /dev/random over /dev/urandom
  • Fix detection of s390x (Debian bug 638347)
