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