Package : memcached CVE ID : CVE-2016-8704 CVE-2016-8705 CVE-2016-8706 Debian Bug : 842811 842812 842814

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.
