I wanted to install certain software. The package had lots of files including some shell scripting files. Initially I had to select some files and then make it executable:
chmod 777 shellscr1
but then I realized that there are many such files which I will have to make executable. So as a shortcut, I did this:
chmod 777 *
and now all the files are executable.
Are there any serious consequences of doing this (apart from security)?
