Restricting access to only trusted computers and networks might greatly reduce the likelihood of a successful exploit. **Deploy network intrusion detection systems to monitor network traffic for malicious activity.** Deploy NIDS to detect and block attacks and anomalous activity. Review logs from network devices regularly. **Run all software as a nonprivileged user with minimal access rights.** Run all server software in a closed or restricted environment such as chroot or jail to limit the consequences of a successful exploit. **Permit privileged access for trusted individuals only.** Allow privileged access to software and resources to known and trusted individuals only. Vendor updates are available. Please see the references for more information.
