How to fix?

Upgrade MongoDB.Driver to version 2.12.2 or higher.

Overview

MongoDB.Driver is an Official .NET driver for MongoDB.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Information Exposure. MongoDB C# Driver may erroneously publish events containing authentication-related data to a command listener configured by an application. The published events may contain security-sensitive data when commands such as saslStart, saslContinue, isMaster, createUser, and updateUser are executed.

Without due care, an application may inadvertently expose this authenticated-related information, e.g., by writing it to a log file.

Note: This issue only arises if an application enables the command listener feature (this is not enabled by default).
