    I’m not sure how much of that (if any) the average user can even change, let alone access, on standard shared hosts.

    In other words, it looks more like a hosting issue, or if you have that much control over your own box.

    Yes, that is probably the case for the vast majority of users (as it is for me with one site). But I’m being asked for one site by the people responsible for hosting if I know if any of these options will break WordPress.

    I’m going to try it out on a box under my own control – but was just curious to know if anyone else had yet had any experience with applying any of the options.

    This vulnerability has been known since I believe around 2007 (or huh it was mentioned…) Some may have not taken much interest in it because a DDOS attack does not necessarily need a server vulnerability. A server vulnerability like this may only make the attack simpler. If an an attacker wants to seriously DDOS your site, they do not need this vulnerability.
