How would these two worms react to classical hardening tips such as PHP
Safe mode and noexec /tmp ?
For this particular strain it would certainly help, but that is why there
exists new variations. Certainly doing it to /tmp, /usr/tmp, /var/tmp
could help, but it isn't 100% foolproof, and some don't even consider it

or other, equivalent methods.
ie its only effective against directly executing files on those
filesystems; you can still use other methods to run them.
