Applicative Denial of Service is mostly known through Regexp abuse. Most people do not know that other applicative DoS can be exploited through diverse means. In this talk, we will see how a malicious user can obtain a MongoDB injection and use it to prevent an application from responding.

Intro: Applicative DoS
I. From SQL injections to NoSQL injections
II. Exploiting a NoSQL injection to obtain a DoS
III. Protecting an application from MongoDB applicative DoS

When speaking about security in the Node.js world, most efforts have been in direction of the choice of packages. However, most security issues are not coming from third-party modules but from misuse of them.

This talk aims at showing how fragile an application can be and how one should protect it.
