The above started to appear in the daily security run output after I
upgraded to 9.1. I don't understand, what this check is doing or why the
above file is reported -- what's abnormal (warning-worthy) about
allowing the web-server to write to, but not read a file? I did it on
purpose to keep all files associated with a project together, but
without inadvertently serving some of them...
The actual script generating this warning (110.neggrpperm) was added in
2010 and meant to be off by default. There is no explicit mention of the

I understand, I can explicitly disable it, but I'm curious... Whether it
should run by default or not, what is the purpose of it?
