    Aleksandar Nikolic of Cisco Talos discovered several integer overflow
    vulnerabilities in memcached, a high-performance memory object caching
    system. A remote attacker can take advantage of these flaws to cause a
    denial of service (daemon crash), or potentially to execute arbitrary
    code.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.21-1.1+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your memcached packages.
