[Bug 1397652] [NEW] /dev/random and /dev/urandom world writeable


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

It looks like in 14.04.1 that /dev/random and /dev/urandom are world-
writeable.  This occurs in at least 14.04.1 Desktop for AMD64 and Server
for i386

$ ls -l /dev/*random 
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 1, 8 Nov 25 10:44 /dev/random
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 1, 9 Nov 25 10:44 /dev/urandom

As far as I know, they should be 664 or 644.
