Package : memcached
Version : 1.5.6-1.1+deb10u1

It was discovered that there was a potential Denial of Service (DoS)
vulnerability in memcached, a high-performance in-memory object
caching system.

A crash could have occured when handling "multi-packet" uploads in
UDP mode. Deployments of memcached that only use TCP are likely
unaffected by this issue.

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your memcached packages.
