GPA creates decrypted files with the default umask
Closed, ResolvedPublic



Event Timeline

When decrypting files in the file manager window, GPA 0.9.0 creates the plaintext
files with the user's default permissions. On most Linux distributions, this means
the plaintext file is world readable (i.e. umask 0022 -> permissions 0755).

That is standard Unix behaviour and not a bug. Set your umask properly.
GnuPG does the same.
