The script sets the permission for a number of files and directories for the "other" group to be the same as those of the "group" (= the dba group), so the OP should be aware of security implications, as stated in the disclaimer in the script:


Disclaimer: The purpose of this script is to relax permissions on some of the files in the database Oracle Home so that all clients can access them.
Please note that Oracle Corporation recommends using the most restrictive file permissions as possible for your given implementation. Running this script should be done only after considering all security ramifications.
