Recommendations

Permit privileged access for trusted individuals only.
Allow only trusted individuals to have user accounts and local access to the resources.

Modify default ACL settings.
Implement database access control to limit the immediate impact of such vulnerabilities on the data within the database and possibly the database itself. Ensure that applications are isolated from one another and from sensitive data in the database through separate user accounts and restrictive ACL configurations.

Updates are available. Please see the references or vendor advisory for more information.
