Script to list all filesystem objects with ACLs
Authored by: xr4ti on Aug 19, '08 11:37:45AM

And, on the question about vendors:

no, I don't know of a vendor that has intentionally or mistakenly set ACLs improperly. Since I've just start tracking ACLs closely, I can't be sure that the few third-party installers I've already run have altered or added ACLs to my system. I use Tripwire religiously, and it's what caught past POSIX tampering by some major vendors.

I can only say that the current crop of 800+ ACLs on my system look like they were either done by Apple, or done by Get Info before I realized how much damage Get Info can do.
