This problem is similar to the other issue with Redis a year or so ago where people were allowing external access without any password protection
This isn't a problem with NodeBB per-se, but potentially we should update documentation to stress how important it is to secure your own install.
If you're not hosting with us, make sure you have rolling backups!
