Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: memcached: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201406-13)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: June 15, 2014
Bug(s): #279386, #452098, #467962, #496506, #498078
ID: 201406-13

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in memcached, allowing
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause Denial of Service.


Background

memcached is a high-performance, distributed memory object caching
system


Affected Packages

Package: net-misc/memcached
Vulnerable: < 1.4.17
Unaffected: >= 1.4.17
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

memcached authentication could be bypassed when using SASL due to a flaw
related to SASL authentication state. Also several heap-based buffer
overflows due to integer conversions when parsing certain length
attributes were discovered.


Impact

A remote attacker could possibly execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the process, cause a Denial of
Service condition or authenticate with invalid SASL credentials,
bypassing memcached authentication completely.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All memcached users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/memcached-1.4.17"
