Querying malformed ObjectId fails to return

Racket Version:


When querying a malicious or badly-formed ObjectId, mongo-collection-find fails to return. Perhaps it is waiting to decode more bytes?

To reproduce:

(define q (make-hasheq))
(hash-set! q '_id (string->bson-objectid "test"))
(mongo-collection-find coll q)

The BSON ObjectId datatype is 12 bytes, so a simple test in bson/shared.rkt should fix this:

(define (string->bson-objectid s)
  (let ([b (base64-decode (string->bytes/utf-8 s))])
    (if (= 12 (bytes-length b))
        (make-bson-objectid b)
        (error 'string->bson-objectid "bad object id"))))

This is (similar to) the workaround I'm using in my code. I imagine (though have not confirmed) the error might be exposed through the dispatch operator as well (when typing in random URLs).
