Someone in a Matrix room I'm a part of mentioned this:

C: Do you want more buffer overflow vulnerabilities? No? Well... take it anyway!

Of course `gcrypt` would have an exploitable heap overflow. This is why I recommend avoiding PGP

@Serpent27 What PGP alternatives would be suitable? Considering the need to secure otherwise unencrypted protocol like SMTP ?

@ratonfire Email is, in general, not a good protocol for security/privacy. However, if you want something that use more modern encryption than PGP, I recommend using Age for encryption, and Minisign for signing

github.com/jedisct1/minisign

@Serpent27 Just saw I replied the wrong toot. Thanks for the recommendations nevertheless
