You can use feature "referer" in the Apache. Browser tells him from what page
goes. Only scripts called from index pages on My server are displayed.

SetEnvIfNoCase Referer "^http://my.customers-web.com" local_ref
<Directory "/usr/local/apache/mrtg-cgi/">
Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
Allow from env=local_ref

This can be combined with classic ".htaccess".
