Red Hat Releases Security Guidance for Memcached

Original release date: March 03, 2018

Red Hat has released security recommendations to address potential Distributed Denial of Service attacks using Memcached. This misconfiguration could allow an attacker to exploit Memcached services as a reflection and amplification vector, causing unexpected volumes of traffic to be sent to targeted systems and networks.

NCCIC/US-CERT encourages users and administrators to review the Red Hat Advisories 3369081 and 1160613 as well as Alert TA14-017A for more information.
