    I have not come across this before but a few days ago, after installing oracle java jre-7u2, I
    noticed the folder permissions showing uucp as owner.
    I immediatly uninstalled in favour of jre-6u30 which shows owner as root.
    Can someone perhaps explain why a file or folder would have uucp permissions in the first
    place ?
