Hunt Open MongoDB instances!


  • Worlds fastest and most efficient scanner ( Uses Masscan ).
  • Scans entire internet by default, So fire the tool and chill.
  • Hyper efficient - Uses Go-routines which are even lighter than threads.

Pre-Requisites -

  • Go language ( sudo apt install golang )
  • Masscan ( sudo apt install masscan )
  • Tested on Ubuntu & Kali linux

How to install and run -

git clone

cd mongoBuster

go build mongobuster.go utils.go

sudo ./mongobuster

Note: Run it with sudo as Masscan requires sudo access.

Flags -

Flag Description
--max-rate= (int) Defines maximum rate at which packets are generated and sent. Default is 100.
--out-file= (string) Name of file to which vulnerable IPs will be exported.
-v Display error msgs from non-vulnerable servers


Using ridiculous values for max-rate flag like 10000+ will most likely bring down your own network infrastructure.

Recommended value is to start with --max-rate 500 for consumer Gigabit routers.

Happy Hunting ;)

Final Note :- If you find bunch of insecure insances, ( which you will! ) You might wanna explore them with GUI tools like - Robo 3t

Please report these insecure instances to their respective owners, Lets make a safer internet together <3.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
