Independent security specialist Bob Dyachenko found a unprotected database running on MongoDB with more than 200 thousand scanned private documents on the server of the Abbyy company. Among them - contracts, nondisclosure agreements, corporate usernames and scrambled passwords. This is reported by Tech Crunch.

The researcher told the company about the problem in early August 2018, and it shut down the server. August 27, 2018 Abbyy confirmed the leak, but did not explain why the server was not protected by a password. According to its representatives, only one client was compromised.

The incident in question concerns one rather than several customers and files bearing commercial information. The customer has been duly notified and we are cooperating on corrective measures.

In particular, the release includes an optional MongoDB plug-in for EOSIO nodes, which makes it possible to archive blockchain data into the MongoDB database and perform highly scalable and convenient queries of this data.

Two other important updates include overload protection and the ability to quickly restore databases, as well as accelerated synchronization by avoiding attempts to transfer transactions from synchronized nodes.

Detailed documentation of the new release is available on GitHub.
