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."

sudo -s
cp /bin/rm /bin/rm_org
vi /bin/rm (write a scipt that runs rm with -i)
chmod a+r /bin/rm

You're secure now. Try that on not-UNIX box.
