Recommendations

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 including unexplained incoming and outgoing traffic. This may indicate exploit attempts or activity that results from successful exploits.

Implement multiple redundant layers of security.
se of multiple redundant layers of encryption may reduce exposure to this and other latent vulnerabilities.

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