Whatever did it, if it was a "security" tool, that's pretty
bass-ackwards.  Now they have you running as root to do things you
don't need to be running as root, which is a fundamental no-no.  I'd
change it back to 755.  If you track down whether tiger or bastille did
that, I'd say you'd be right to file a bug against the culprit.

good times,
