A vulnerability has been discovered in TPTEST, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the "GetStatsFromLine()" function in engine/tpcommon.c (version 3.x) or src/net/tpcommon.cpp (version 5.x) when processing STATS lines containing an overly long "email" or "pwd" tag field. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow by sending a specially crafted STATS line to a vulnerable server.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 3.1.7 and reported in 5.02. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Restrict access to trusted users only.
