<title>memcached: Multiple vulnerabilities</title>
<synopsis>Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in memcached, allowing
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause Denial of Service.

<p>memcached is a high-performance, distributed memory object caching
<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.
<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>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All memcached users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-misc/memcached-1.4.17"
