    Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in memcached, a high-performance
    memory object caching system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
    project identifies the following issues:
    
    CVE-2011-4971
    
        Stefan Bucur reported that memcached could be caused to crash by
        sending a specially crafted packet.
    
    CVE-2013-7239
    
        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
    version 1.4.13-0.2+deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your memcached packages.
