    Question Security preferences gone
    Someone thought it would be a good idea to chmod o-r /System/Library/PreferencePanes/Security.prefPane I fixed it, but still can't find my Security Preferences. What else could bring it back?

    Out of curiosity, who told you to go around changing file/directory permissions?

    To fix it, execute the following to restore normal permissions:
    Code:
    sudo chmod 755 /System/Library/PreferencePanes/Security.prefPane/

    Nobody. Wasn't me ;-) Someone thought that would be a good way to hide that panel from users.

    To fix it, execute the following to restore normal permissions:
    Code:
    sudo chmod 755 /System/Library/PreferencePanes/Security.prefPane/
    Already did that. Didn't work.
