WordPress Plugins Upload Defaults to 777 permissions

  • Hi,

    I’m currently using WordPress 3.5 on nginx/1.2.6 with PHP-FPM web server setup on my VPS.
    I noticed a major security problem whenever I upload a wordpress plugin, it would default all the directories and files to 777 permissions.
    I was wondering if anyone else out there had experienced this or has an idea what is causing this and how to fix it so it properly sets the correct permissions.

    Any supportive advice would be greatly appreciated.
