I wonder if the better policy is to not run inherently insecure applications
to begin with. In theory if no-one can get to that box or make use of that
application from the internet then your only threats become internal ones.

Just for curiosity sake what does nmap tell you about your box/interface
from an outside perspective ? Another great check is sockstat -4 which will
list the services running and the IP/port number there running on.
