By default, the signac-dashboard application only listens to HTTP requests from
localhost, on port 8888.
Running the signac-dashboard Flask server with a configuration that makes it publicly accessible presents a critical security risk.
For example, user-implemented modules may not be safe-guarded against arbitrary code execution.
To enable remote access, use secure port forwarding via SSH.
The use of the
$where operation in searches is disabled by default and must be explicitly enabled, in which case the dashboard is vulnerable against code-injection attacks.
