Mac OS X "[Last week], we reported on a Trojan horse for Mac OS X that is just like the entry for Earth in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in that it is mostly harmless. A new vulnerability targeted at Apple's home-grown web browser, Safari, is another matter entirely. A German security firm appears to have been the first to discover the Safari flaw, which allows for shell scripts to be executed after clicking a link."

You're right it's not a "fix" but I'm assuming each script can only refer to one path for the app, and I'm also assuming a trojan would be set to refer to the default path, so it seems like a good idea for the time being to me, until a real fix, as you say, is rolled out.
