    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-2141
    
    Evgeny Sidorov discovered that libcrypto++, a general purpose C++
    cryptographic library, did not properly implement blinding to mask
    private key operations for the Rabin-Williams digital signature
    algorithm. This could allow remote attackers to mount a timing attack
    and retrieve the user's private key.
