I have some files with 755 permissions. Is this a security threat?

September 15, 2010     0 comments

Having files with 755 permissions is not a security threat on our servers because we set each public_html directory with 750 permissions and only your user can read them.

Thus, regardless of your files' permissions, other users cannot read / execute / write in them.

Please though, try to refrain from having files with 777 permissions, as this will be a security risk. The default permissions of files are 644.
