When I enter the command sudo ufw status in Ubuntu, I receive the following error:

ERROR: /var/lib is world writable!

Can anyone help?

What are /var/lib's permissions? For that matter, what are /var's? –  mpez0 Feb 19 '10 at 14:59

sudo chmod 755 /var/lib will ensure that /var/lib has the right permissions.
