    Hello,

    We had an attacker get a list of domains on the server by looking in /var/named - it is set to chmod 755 owned by named.named - will cpanel complain or will anything break if we change it to say 750 or 751?

    Go on, have a guess
    So long as all the files including the directory are owned by named:named it ought to be OK to use 750.
