Description

Jibbers McGee discovered that PyMongo incorrectly handled certain invalid DBRefs. An attacker could use this issue to cause PyMongo to crash, resulting in a denial of service.

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