    Question Permission for the log files


    Hi,

    Can some one guide me what should be the minimal permission for the log files in the linux system?

    should it contain execute permission or only read/write permission.

    I see some of our application is setting the application log file permission to read and execute.

    Please guide me to understand the need of execute permission for log files.

    Thanks,
    Veda

    you're not supposed to mess around with the permissions.
    if you can't see it, you have to look at it with superuser privileges.
    if your app gives execute permissions to a plain text log file, then that application is wrong.

    I'd add possibly malicious to wrong.
