Auto-disable AirPort when ethernet is active
Authored by: blorg on Oct 06, '10 07:53:25AM

777 perms are dangerous (anyone can edit/modify the file). On a Mac, probably not all that important, as they tend to be single-user systems, but reasonable UNIX practices should still be used. I would recommend making the file owned by someone other than the primary user and making the file mode 755, that way it can't be modified by a drive by scripter and have things executed as the logged in user.

That was my fault. Fixed per your suggestion.

Thanks,
