Workaround shows ACL on an interface. Will ACL on VTY line to protect TELNET/SSH also work?

Also, how about ACL on ip HTTP command, and BGP ? Will this prevent this vulnerability?

"Although this is an issue with TCP, it is not required to complete the TCP 3-way handshake in order for the memory leak to be triggered. Therefore, TCP packets with a spoofed source address may trigger the leak."

Doesn't need TCP 3way handshake, I take it that VTY acl will prob not work then?
