This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

The process_stat function in Memcached prior 1.2.8 discloses
memory-allocation statistics in response to a stats malloc command,
which allows remote attackers to obtain potentially sensitive
information by sending this command to the daemon's TCP port
(CVE-2009-1255, CVE-2009-1494).

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.

Solution :

Update the affected memcached package.
