World Readable Home Directories?
I notice a few Linux distributions (Debian / Ubuntu) give every users home directory 755 permissions:
I don't understand this logic. In my opinion the only person who should be able to read a users home folder is the owner itself. I can understand if this was a generic share folder located under "/" but I prefer the RPM distributions method of making home directories 700.

Does understand why specific distributions above do this? I don't know if there is a way to change the permissions auto granted to home directories created with the "adduser".
