At least for the particular exploit that has been discussed. It's possible 
there are other pages that use @@MV_PREV_PAGE@@ or [subject] that could be 
vulnerable, and protecting against the unknown is what the patch is good 
for. But for a quick fix against this particular problem, yes, scrubbing 
special_pages/missing.html seems to do the trick.
