MongoDB authentication

I used to run MongoDB authentication-less. I used to rely on a firewall to shield MongoDB against outside access and only allow access from within the server-network like early MongoDB guides suggested, but I know that my skills as a sysadmin are limited. So I decided to enabled user accounts and authentication for MongoDB and add support for authentication to the gameserver. Better safe than sorry.
