Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in memcached, a high-performance
memory object caching system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following issues:
Stefan Bucur reported that memcached could be caused to crash by
sending a specially crafted packet.
It was reported that SASL authentication could be bypassed due to a
flaw related to the managment of the SASL authentication state. With
a specially crafted request, a remote attacker may be able to
authenticate with invalid SASL credentials.
For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed
in version 1.4.5-1+deb6u1. Note that the patch for CVE-2013-7239 was not
applied for the oldstable distribution as SASL support is not enabled in
this version. This update also provides the fix for CVE-2013-0179 which
was fixed for stable already.
For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your memcached packages.
