i will investigate all options given, thanks all

the issue is that this is a somewhat automated process in that a machine 
is installed, applications deployed and brought into service as an 
automated process so i cant check all the time to make sure permissions 
are OK, ie world readable on logs.

i think to solve this i need to delve into the deploy to see why the 
permissions are being reset -
