MoreInternet changes not taking effect for some userids...

Yes, RCDefaultApp should work. There is no real way to "remove" a mapping; as long as LaunchServices knows of an application that can handle a URL scheme, it will use it. There are ways to kill all of the user-set mappings, but I would think that all Apple-provided default helpers get re-added.

RCDefaultApp "disables" schemes by assigning them to a real application that does nothing with them. It runs in the background (then exits) so you never see it. Since it's a real application, the setting should remain, and it's easy to change back to Helper Viewer when/if Apple fixes the vulnerability. I am fairly certain that MoreInternet does not work this way.
