<p>memcached is a high-performance, distributed memory object caching
system
</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>memcached authentication could be bypassed when using SASL due to a flaw
related to SASL authentication state. Also several heap-based buffer
overflows due to integer conversions when parsing certain length
attributes were discovered.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could possibly execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the process, cause a Denial of
Service condition or authenticate with invalid SASL credentials,
bypassing memcached authentication completely.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>All memcached users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-misc/memcached-1.4.17"
</code>
</resolution>
