Medium Nessus Plugin ID 95020
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201611-13 (MongoDB: Denial of Service)
MongoDB’s ‘mongod’ server fails to validate some cases of malformed BSON.
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted BSON request possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll MongoDB users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-db/mongodb-2.4.13'
