Memcached 1.4.39 Release Notes
Fixes a reported CVE in binary protocol code. Also adds a trivial 4 byte
reduction in memory usage under
-o modern if client flags aren't used.
This CVE seems relatively minor; may be able to crash worker threads. I wasn't able to quickly reproduce a crash but folks should still upgrade when convenient.
- fix for CVE-2017-9951
- save four bytes per item if client flags are 0
If client flags are "0", no extra storage is used.
