A message for you, software developers: admins don't read the fucking manual. Admins don't mess with configuration. Admins deploy, test, and push into production.

Admins leave MongoDB databases with default settings, wide open for all the internet to access.

Sysadmins are lazy.
By all means: make SECURE DEFAULT SETTINGS and ANNOY THE FUCK OUT OF SYSADMINS WHO TRY TO MAKE IT INSECURE.

(reason of the rant: a major French media had a MongoDB wide open with 60 GB of private customer data)

IHMO, if you don't read the doc, you're just a bad admin. I agree we need secure default settings, but people need to read the fucking manual.
