How to prevent bricking laptop?

I have a Samsung laptop Serie9 which is vulnerable to this bug I believe (NP900X3C-A05NL). I have not bricked my laptop yet.

Is there any setting to prevent running into this bug accidentally?

I precise that I run Linux (xubuntu-12.10) exclusively (Windows8 has been wiped out) and UEFI is disabled in BIOS.
