    mongo-escape

    Escape variables to prevent NoSQL injection in MongoDB

    Replace all occurences of "$" and "." with "$" and ".", respectively.

    Note: this module protects against keyword injection, not full JavaScript injection. Don't rely on this module for escaping the mapReduce command or $where operator as these commands parse and execute their values as JavaScript. From a security point of view it is recommended to disable server side JavaScript in MongoDB.

    Examples

    Escape a string so that it can be used as a key in a query:

    var assert = require('assert')
    var me = require('mongo-escape').escape
     
    var userInput = me('$in')
     
    assert.equal(userInput, '$in')

    Now escape all keys in an object:

    userInput = me({
      'foo': 'bar',
      'ba.z': {
        '$in': 'quz'
      }
    })
     
    assert.deepEqual(userInput, {
      'foo': 'bar',
      'ba.z': { '$in': 'quz' }
    })

    Note: beware that keys in objects are replaced in-place, the object is not cloned.

    Installation

    $ npm install mongo-escape

    API

    escape(obj, [recurse])

    • input {mixed} input to escape
    • recurse {Boolean, default: true} whether or not to recurse
    • @return {mixed} properly escaped input

    Ensure any input is properly escaped. Where needed $ and . are replaced with and , respectively.

    If input is an object, all keys are escaped. If input is not an object but a string it is escaped as well. Otherwise return the original value. If input is a function or a symbol an error is raised.

    Note: if input is an object, keys are replaced in place.

    unescape(obj, [recurse])

    • input {mixed} input to unescape
    • recurse {Boolean, default: true} whether or not to recurse
    • @return {mixed} properly unescaped input

    Ensure any input is properly unescaped. Where needed and are replaced with $ and ., respectively.

    If input is an object, all keys are unescaped. If input is not an object but a string it is unescaped as well. Otherwise return the original value. If input is a function or a symbol an error is raised.

    Note: if input is an object, keys are replaced in place.
