I just did more testing today, and the behavior is not the same in all
cases. Especially, it will often answer to the first CONNECT request to
a specific site with a 403 forbidden page, and will only use 302 for
subsequent calls. The JS code on the 403 page gathers the full URI,
which is, well, actually exploiting the vulnerability since this
information should only be transmitted over SSL.
