    Send bad_record_mac instead of decryption_failed
    The decryption failed alert was deprecated a long time ago. It can
    provide an attacker too much information to be able to distinguish between
    MAC failures and decryption failures and can lead to oracle attacks.
    Instead we should always use the bad_record_mac alert for these issues.
    This fixes one instance that still exists. It does not represent a
    security issue in this case because it is only ever sent if the record is
    publicly invalid, i.e. we have detected it is invalid without using any
    secret material.
