Hello folks,

i am a user of Debian for some years and i work as a trainer in Linux.
I often have to handle with the default settings i the adduser-script 
for "dir_mode". In the most trainings there is the question "How can 
Debian be a secure system with such default settings in adduser?". Other 
Linux-distributions got settings like 700. I also think default settings 
in the adduser-scrpit for "dir_mode" should NOT be 755 like they are in 
all actual packages (adduser_3.47_all.deb, adduser_3.59_all.deb and 
I hope you all will change these settings.
