Hi,
Which database is easy to hack? Is it Mongo DB or MYSQL or Redis?

Hey,

I think it depends more on how the database is implemented and maintained, and how applications and users access an query it.

If done proper, none of them are easy targets. If done wrongly, they all are.

It's three very different types of databases.

I'll call out MySQL for being an easier target than Mongo simply because of the wealth of known exploits for skiddies and that fact that MySQL is usually paired with terrible PHP and security weak CMS platforms like Wordpress, which provide for simply "more targets".

However, inherently MongoDB is less secure due to a number of factors. Rather than dive into I'll just give a good link: https://www.trustwave.com/Resources/Spi ... -database/

The article is a couple years old and Mongo has addressed some of these concerns, but not enough that in a straight up comparison disregarding the front-end that uses that DB, MySQL is actually more secure IMHO.

I can't speak to Redis - I have literally 0 experience in using it, and I don't want to speak to it without actually having done any research.
