As of MythTV 0.20, use mytharchive at your own risk. Serious security holes will be introduced to the system after running mytharchive. ALL file system objects (from /, downward) will be set to world readable and writeable that can be written by the user running mytharchive. You have been warned.

Does this mean it will chmod all the directories it would write to, or all directories to readable and writeable that can be written by?

Does anyone know which parts of the f/s specifically?
