  <impact type="normal">
    <p>A remote attacker could send a specially crafted request to trigger a
      use-after-free condition, possibly resulting in arbitrary code execution
      or a Denial of Service condition. Additionally, the bundled version of
      libtommath has an error in its prime number generation, which could
      result in the generation of weak keys.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>All Dropbear users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
    
    <code>
      # emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-misc/dropbear-2012.55"
    </code>
