    Hi azis73,
    There is no single "procedure" as such.
    Some patching has been done in the January Windows Update Rollup, and Linux updates.
    Otherwise, just be sure you have at least the 57.04 version of Firefox, or preferably ver. 58.
    There isn't much we as users can do, except stay away from shady websites, and don't download unknown "free" programs.

    The situation has become complex with some patches not working properly with certain hardware and software configurations.
    Plus many older CPUs that are vulnerable are yet to be addressed.
    At the moment, there is no 'one fix' that fixes all and in the end, it will likely be necessary to choose patches to match the specs of your computer and the operating system/apps on it.

    There's an interesting Guest Diary over at sans.org Internet Storm Center;https://isc.sans.edu Having read it once fairly quickly I can't say I'm much wiser but it, and the things it links to, do provide a picture of the situation as it is now.
