Description Arun Babu Neelicattu 2013-09-25 08:20:49 UTC
A flaw was identified in how MongoDBDriftServer instances saved change sets. When unpacking a given zip file, the saveChangeSetFiles method creates and extracts to a predictable temporary directory. Once extracted all files in this directory are stored. This allows a local attacker to provide their own change set to be imported into the server instance.
