Description

This strike exploits a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability in Memcached. This vulnerability is due to a lack of bounds checking in the 'try_read_command_binary' function while processing binary commands. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a specially crafted packet to the vulnerable service. Successful exploitation could result in code execution in the context of the memcached daemon and/or trigger a denial-of-service condition.
