What is MongoDB?

MongoDB is a document database with the scalability and flexibility that you want with the querying and indexing that you need

MongoDB stores data in flexible, JSON-like documents, meaning fields can vary from document to document and data structure can be changed over time The document model maps to the objects in your application code, making data easy to work with Ad hoc queries, indexing, and real time aggregation provide powerful ways to access and analyze your data MongoDB is a distributed database at its core, so high availability, horizontal scaling, and geographic distribution are built in and easy to use

MongoDB is free to use. Versions released prior to October 16, 2018 are published under the AGPL. All versions released after October 16, 2018, including patch fixes for prior versions, are published under the Server Side Public License (SSPL) v1.

However, for reference, I'm referring to the use case of NoSQL for capturing data related to internet adverting and other marketing data as being the driving factor for NoSQL at the start. One of those things, this is going to make everyone's life so much easier and then 10 years later you realize you created the tool that destroyed privacy :/

MongoDB though, easy to use and can handle millions of transactions easily, I really can't complain and it makes running reports a lot easier.

Not an inherent vulnerability, but MongoDB admins should ensure they're avoiding common pitfalls by, among other things, blocking access to port 27017 or binding local IP addresses to limit access to servers. Thousands of MongoDBs have been hijacked by hackers recently: and
