Security researchers uncovered a concentrated malware attack against MongoDB servers that is reminiscent of previous attacks from earlier this year.
Analysts found that MySQL databases had been attacked by a ransomware campaign similar to the one that affected MongoDB databases in January.
MongoDB offered a set of security best practices to help users protect their databases from cybercriminals looking to exploit misconfigured servers.
Cybercriminals leveraged poor password hygiene among users and administrators to compromise nearly 30,000 databases on MongoDB servers.
A security researcher has discovered that thousands of MongoDB databases are publicly exposed on the Internet, creating vulnerabilities for organizations.
Don't let your NoSQL database security — or lack thereof — keep you up at night. Instead, work on securing your dream apps throughout development.
A recent report suggested poor configurations of MongoDB, Redis and similar database products may be exposing data to cybercriminals.
Some 30,000 instances of MongoDB are accessible over the Internet because of a failure by database administrators to properly configure them.
