Description

memcached before 1.4.17, when running in verbose mode, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a request that triggers an "unbounded key print" during logging, related to an issue that was "quickly grepped out of the source tree," a different vulnerability than CVE-2013-0179 and CVE-2013-7290.
