Description

A denial of service vulnerability was discovered in mongodb, an object/document-oriented database, whereby a user authorized to perform database queries may issue specially crafted queries, which violate an invariant in the query subsystem's support for geoNear.

For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version 1:3.2.11-2+deb9u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your mongodb packages.

For the detailed security status of mongodb please refer to its security tracker page at: https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/mongodb

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
