And so I have implemented it now. If it breaks too much in too short
time, we could probably revert it, but first I'd like to see how bad
we really do.
I agree to this (first) solution; this will give us a good idea about
scope of the problem.
I have watched the indexer for a week now. The scope is more than two
uploads per day. These uploads got an email about world writable files
or directories. I looked up their CPAN directories right now and based
on the findings I have added the third column.

Congratulations to all authors who managed to fix their distros.
I *you* are among them, please spread the word how you did it.
I fixed the issue for ExtUtils::Install by changing my windows
permissions to be me only instead of Everyone. Also unclicked the
"inherit permissions from parent object" and used the advanced tab to
propagate the permissions to all children. No doubt I could have done
it with a command line tool, but I couldnt remember what it was

Switching to CREATOR OWNER didnt work, nor did CREATOR GROUP.
