Golang Misconfigured Permissions CHMOD

What does this mean ?

During installation, installed file permissions are set to allow anyone to modify those files.

What can happen ?

An attacker can access the file and perhaps have write access to it to establish malicious connection aka reverse shell, bind shell with the system, a chmod command should be carefully investigated to make sure the file that gets created won't be abused by insider or external attack vectors


Do not use poor file permissions for a file with chmod. Use file permimssion 0600 or less.
