On Debian by default the files and directories have 644 or 755 perms 
unless special cases (i.e. shadow has 640, /root has 740). 
See the relevant section of the Debian Policy at 
By default the Debian OS is not hardened. However, your mileage may
vary, so you are welcome to harden your Debian OS if you are concerned
about security or you simply would like to apply a more stringent security
policy. In addition to making sure you apply the latest security updates from 
security.debian.org in your APT settings (i.e. /etc/apt/sources.list), you can 
harden the your OS by using one or the combination of the following methods:

1- Set up HIDS (OSSEC)
2- Install file/directory integrity checker (i.e. Tripwire)
3- Run remote vulnerability scans (i.e. Openvas, Nessus)
