Recently I noticed a second “everyone” with “custom” privileges in some files. No idea when or how it happened, and it seems random, but so far, I’ve only found this in the Library. (see screenshot)
I’m having problems with Adobe Lightroom “presets” files with this user not being able to update when changes are made. On one file, I changed this user’s privileges from Custom to Read only and it appears to have fixed that file’s updating problem.
Any ideas what might cause this second “everyone” user to appear? Is there a way to find all files that have this user? I’d like to know where they all are, for starters.
See that “+” sign? Here’s what the documentation has to say about that:
If the file or directory has extended attributes, the permissions field printed by the -l option is followed by an @ character. Otherwise, if the file or directory has extended security information, the permissions field printed by the -l option is followed by a + character.
That “extended security information” is probably what’s causing the “Everyone: Custom” entry in the permissions list.
You could probably work up something with the find command, again in Terminal.
