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.
The weakness is reported in version 1.2.7. Prior versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 1.2.8.
