The current available solution:
Solution:
The vulnerability can be mitigated by disabling the "Open safe files after downloading" option in Safari.

these are directions on how to make your own exploit for this, so you are certain what's in the files, the link on secunia is just a launch command for calculator.app, and on another link in slashdot for Heiser-something was just a jpg that did ls -al and echo "some german message"
