Block external access at the network boundary, unless external parties require service.If global access isn't needed, filter access to the affected computer at the network boundary. Restricting access to only trusted computers and networks might greatly reduce the likelihood of a successful exploit.
Run all software as a nonprivileged user with minimal access rights.To limit the impact of a successful exploit, run server software with the least privileges required and in restricted environments while still maintaining functionality.
Deploy network intrusion detection systems to monitor network traffic for malicious activity.Deploy NIDS to monitor network traffic for signs of anomalous or suspicious activity. This includes but is not limited unexplained incoming and outgoing traffic. This may indicate exploit attempts or activity that results from successful exploits.
Do not follow links provided by unknown or untrusted sources.Web users should be cautious about following links to websites that are provided by unfamiliar or suspicious sources. Filtering HTML from emails may help remove a possible vector for transmitting malicious links to users.
Implement multiple redundant layers of security.Implement measures such as '.htaccess' to provide an additional layer of authentication for sensitive or privileged information.
