<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted STATS line, possibly
resulting in arbitrary code execution or a Denial of Service condition.

<workaround>
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>All TPTEST users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
