I'm working with a system where a few files and maps seem to have permission 777. I want to change them to a more secure chmod, but I don't have a list of all the 777-files.

I could do a terminal command like ls -l -R , but the filesystem has thousands of files, so that's not really efficient.

Is there a query-like way to find all te files that have 777 for permission? like ls -l -R where chmod = 777 or something, or otherwise maybe a php solution? I don't know how that would work.




find ./  -perm 777

For more information, check:

man find
