According to Hacking for Dummies, taking these steps will help prevent default script attacks: 

 

  • Know how scripts work before deploying them within a web environment.

     

  • Make sure that all default or sample scripts are removed from the web server before using them.

     

    • Don’t use publicly accessible scripts that contain hard-coded confidential information. They’re a security incident in the making.

     

  • Set file permissions on sensitive areas of your site/application to prevent public access.
