If I understand it correctly memcached servers respond with a larger packet as response to a user request.

  1. I spoof my address to (memcached servers).
  2. Now that I, masquerading as the memcached server address. I can send packets to rival.com
  3. rival.com will turn down.
  • @schroeder I filtered out the confusion. rival.com is the target who will receive the load of the memcached servers ultimately, hope this helps. – queryT Mar 12 at 10:40
  • I think you have this backwards. You can spoof the source of a request. So, you spoof rival.com's ip and connect to the memcached servers who respond to rival. – schroeder Mar 12 at 10:50
