If you have a Mongo Database, better make sure you secure it and use a better more secure password.

You won’t believe how many Internet databases got hacked and held for ransom. The data deleted and the ransomware asking for money.

If one does not secure databases properly these hackers will target them.

In these times, hackers target anything on the Internet. Any weakness they exploit, any easy to guess password they crack. They go to site from site using Botnets and other things to find places to hack.
