A worm has been spotted recently that attacks Linux:

It uses a vulnerability in, among others, WordPress 1.2, which I use.

In its discussion on the Linux Debian User list I discovered Firehol. So 
I started trying to use it.

There are at least 2 ways to protect against this worm:
a. update your software (in my case security updates of Debian Sarge)

b. Use Firehol.

In the latter case, what statements specifically protect against this 
worm, even if you did not update your software?
