Memcached UDP Version Scanner



This module can be used to discover Memcached servers which expose the unrestricted UDP port 11211. A basic "version" request is executed to obtain the version of memcached.

Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use auxiliary/scanner/memcached/memcached_udp_version
msf auxiliary(memcached_udp_version) > show actions
msf auxiliary(memcached_udp_version) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(memcached_udp_version) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(memcached_udp_version) > run 

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
