World writable permissions

There have now been at least two reported cases of data loss on Frank for files and directories that were given world writable permissions. In this case every user has power to remove your files.

Please check your data carefully and remove world writable permissions from files and directories.

If you need to share access to files and directories please use Linux ACLs.

Panasas ACLs

Just a reminder for users of Panasas that getfacl and setfacl do not work there and you should use setAccess as described in our documentation.
