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.

I. From SQL injections to NoSQL injections
