    One of our accounts got this error when trying to change their password through their Cpanel:
    Code:
     "/usr/bin/passwd": permission denied
        while executing
    "spawn /usr/bin/passwd"
        invoked from within
    "set pid [spawn /usr/bin/passwd]"
        (file "/usr/local/cpanel/bin/securechpass" line 14)
    spawn /usr/bin/passwd
    
    the current settings on the file is:
    Code:
    -r-s--x---    1 root     root        15104 Mar 13  2002 passwd
    
    is this the correct chmod settings?
    thx's
