Furthermore on the html/privileges exploit:

Because I think it unlikely there will be a fix to this any time soon,
it would help if people running proxy servers set the servers up to
filter these MIME types:

application/x-sgi-exec          exts=edf
application/x-sgi-task          exts=tdf

and it probably wouldn't hurt to block the other application/x-sgi-
mime types too:

type=application/x-sgi-catalog  exts=cdf
type=application/x-sgi-glossary exts=gloss
type=application/x-sgi-lpr      exts=sgi-lpr
