This is not a problem assuming you know enough to be running this type
of setup. Assuming there are no security holes on the system, you trust the
root user, and had the root user set up a group specifically for you and the
other people with access to the server, a simple

chmod -R o-rwx <circlemud directory>

Will fix all permissions to read all files. Also change the last digit of
your umask
to a 7 (ie, if you umask 022, umask to 027).

If there is only one account for your mud then:

chmod -R og-rwx <circlemud directory>

And change your umask to end in 77 (from 022 to 077).

This will keep you from having problems.
