The ElGamal implementation in Libgcrypt before 1.9.4 allows plaintext
recovery because, during interaction between two cryptographic libraries,
a certain dangerous combination of the prime defined by the receiver's
public key, the generator defined by the receiver's public key, and the
sender's ephemeral exponents can lead to a cross-configuration attack
against OpenPGP (CVE-2021-40528).
