The best thread I can find on this topic is

My memory of the details recalls that even with everything set to 0,
there was something that could enable the admin interface by referrer
spoofing, and then you've lost.

However, I can't find the details so, perhaps it's time to check out the
current versions of privoxy and re-evaluate.  I'd love to stop shipping
a powerpc-only privoxy with the osx bundles, at a minimum.
