DescriptionAccording to the versions of the memcached package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- Two integer overflow flaws, leading to heap-based buffer overflows, were found in the memcached binary protocol. An attacker could create a specially crafted message that would cause the memcached server to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code.
- An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in memcached's parsing of SASL authentication messages. An attacker could create a specially crafted message that would cause the memcached server to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code.(CVE-2016-8706)
