  1. Re: Ban "other" from $HOME and subdirs - Good or Bad Idea?

    Not sure, but perhaps you missed the subtle aspect to Catkiller's suggestion. Read on a directory isn't always needed. Often, eXecute would be fine.
    751 would likely work. Most programs don't scan...

  4. Re: Ban "other" from $HOME and subdirs - Good or Bad Idea?

    I can't see any reason why any setting other than 700 would be cause for issues. At other jobs, we ran that way by defaults. For end-users, we'd often run with 500, so they couldn't accidentally...

    Could be a case of sudo abuse. Using sudo when it isn't needed, especially with GUI applications. When this happens, some directories and files get created with root:root as the owner/group in the...
