Problem with permissions on directory reverting every week

One of the websites we host has a web program they have an admin interface for to update business listings, etc. It was created with perl, it executes from the cgi-bin directory but theres another directory called "data" that stores what data is displayed in the listings - it has to be executable in order to work. Recently, not exactly sure when, the directory's permissions get changed to non executable every week at some point. I can chmod the directory and it will work again until the next week whenever an update or whatever is causing it runs.

Any ideas?
