Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

W non-standard-setuid-executable-perm

The file is setuid or setgid and has a mode different from any of 2755, 4755, 4754, or 6755. Any other permissions on setuid executables is probably a bug. In particular, removing root write privileges serves no purpose, group-writable setuid or setgid executables are probably bad ideas, and setgid executables that are not world-executable serve little purpose.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 10.9 (Permissions and owners) for details.
