I do it thru /proc/sys, look in /proc/sys/net/ipv4

echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_echo_ignore_all

But don't quote me on this one....

Worm will try to propagate by scanning network ranges. If you have no dealings with these ranges, and if you have vulnerable systems add blocking rules. Adding an IDS like Snort should prove beneficial too.
