SynopsisMemcached is running on a public IP address.
DescriptionMemcached is a memory-based object store. As it is designed for performance, this program does not contain any security mechanism (ie: authentication), meaning that anyone can connect to this server and perform queries against it.
SolutionMake sure that the machine is properly protected by a firewall and that traffic to the port is restricted to authorized hosts.
