Description

Secunia reports:

A weakness has been reported in memcached, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose system information. The weakness is caused due to the application disclosing the content of /proc/self/maps if a stats maps command is received. This can be exploited to disclose e.g. the addresses of allocated memory regions.
