VERIFY ADVISORY:

DESCRIPTION:
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.
