 +==== Description ====
 While applying system updates and patches helps correct known vulnerabilities,​ one of the best ways to protect the system against as yet unreported vulnerabilities is to disable all services that are not required for normal system operation. This prevents the exploitation of vulnerabilities discovered at a later date. If a service is not enabled, it cannot be exploited. The actions in this section of the document provide guidance on some services which can be safely disabled and under which circumstances,​ greatly reducing the number of possible threats to the resulting system. Additionally some services which should remain enabled but with secure configuration are covered as well as insecure service clients. While applying system updates and patches helps correct known vulnerabilities,​ one of the best ways to protect the system against as yet unreported vulnerabilities is to disable all services that are not required for normal system operation.
