    in recent updates we have noticed that most or all php and css have the permission to be executable for user, group and everybody. I’m wondering why you have set the permissions that way, because for WordPress they should be unnecessary.

    File permissions are handled by the server and not really under WordPress’ control and definitely not the theme. While WordPress (or plugins) can modify permissions, they need sufficient permissions on the files to begin with.

    I suggest discussing this with your hosting provider as permission changes are either due to a configuration change or a sign for suspicion.
