Fix Recommendation

Correct the permission to the files and/or directories that are in violation.

MongoDB Configuration file (default location):
chown mongod:mongod /etc/mongod.conf
chmod 755 /etc/mongod.conf

MongoDB data file directory (default location):
chown -R mongod:mongod/var/lib/mongo
chmod -R 755/var/lib/mongo

Check Contents

Verify the permissions for the following database files or directories:

MongoDB default configuration file: "/etc/mongod.conf"
MongoDB default data directory: "/var/lib/mongo"

If the owner and group are not both "mongod", this is a finding.

If the file permissions are more permissive than "755", this is a finding.
