GEN001140 - System files and directories must not have uneven access permissions - /usr/ucb/*

Information

Discretionary access control is undermined if users, other than a file owner, have greater access permissions to system files and directories than the owner.

Solution

Change the mode of files with uneven permissions so owners do not have less permission than group or world users.
