  • Disable unnecessary services running on the server to reduce the attack surface.

  • Temporarily shift traffic to a standby server until the official patch can be applied.

  • Implement a virtual patch via a Web Application Firewall to protect against the vulnerability.

  • Enforce full encryption of communications to and from the server.
