Yes WD-40 definitely works. If you see rusty bits coming through douse them in WD. Just dab it with a cloth after spraying (a WD-40 soaked cloth works wonders for cleaning too), as you don't really want it running everywhere although it won't do any harm. Just make sure you leave a residue of it on there and it will help to protect it, it's great for it.
I've had brackets in the garage which where showing rusty spots and after doing the above the rust actually disappeared. I've also seen it turn the rust into a different colour, more black-ish, similar to some rust convertors.
