NewsAnother family tracking app with a massive data leak Pin

The app, Family Locator, built by Australia-based software house React Apps, allows families to track each other in real-time, such as spouses or parents wanting to know where their children are. It also lets users set up geofenced alerts to send a notification when a family member enters or leaves a certain location, such as school or work.

But the backend MongoDB database was left unprotected and accessible by anyone who knew where to look.

...

None of the data was encrypted.


None of this fail is a surprise either. D'Oh! | :doh:

One thing I'm wondering about though. We virtually never see stories about OtherNoSqlDatabase or AnySqlDatabase being left wide open on the internet and megapwnd, it's always Mongo. Is there something specific about Mongo that makes it particularly prone to this sort of fail?
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
