Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

W executable-is-not-world-readable

All executables should be readable by any user. Since anyone can download the Debian package and obtain a copy of the executable, no security is gained by making the executable unreadable even for setuid binaries. If only members of a certain group may execute this file, remove execute permission for world, but leave read permission.

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