    Description

      The default install of mongodb from the repo:
      http://downloads-distro.mongodb.org/repo/debian-sysvinit

      Does not have a "bind_ip 127.0.0.1" option set in the mongodb.conf. This leaves a users server vulnerable if they are not aware of this setting. The default should be to lockdown as much as possible and only expose if the user requests it.
