Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: MongoDB: Denial of Service (GLSA 201611-13)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: November 20, 2016
Bug(s): #542880
ID: 201611-13

Synopsis

A vulnerability in MongoDB can lead to a Denial of Service
condition.


Background

MongoDB (from “humongous”) is a scalable, high-performance, open
source, schema-free, document-oriented database.


Affected Packages

Package: dev-db/mongodb
Vulnerable: < 2.4.13
Unaffected: >= 2.4.13
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

MongoDB’s ‘mongod’ server fails to validate some cases of
malformed BSON.


Impact

A remote attacker could send a specially crafted BSON request possibly
resulting in a Denial of Service condition.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All MongoDB users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/mongodb-2.4.13"
