    Hey,

    I have some folders that are 777 on an account on a server but only cpanel access - Is there a way to scan for this?

    Thanks

    If I understand you correctly, no. You'll need to go thru the directories that might have been changed and check them manually.

    Hi,

    It appears you only have a hosting account, so the best option for you will be to contact your host to provide you with the output of the below command:

    find /home/<your_user>/public_html -type f -perm 0777

    This will give a brief list of files having 777 permission in your account. Otherwise, manually you will have to check all folders and files..
