    I also have this issue on some of my secure settings. So like you I'm wondering what's going on?

    Works the same way on my Air. Don't know if its always been that way or not. Don't know why it's an issue because I have to login with my password to even get access to the folder like that.
    What other issues are you having that makes you think your Mac is hacked?

    I couldn't tell anything from that video. However, I am still running 10.8.5 and can change folder permissions without clicking on the lock. I assume that's because I'm an administrator.

    I can't duplicate this with OS X 10.11.6 using admin account. I can only make changes after clicking the padlock and entering pw. Locking the padlock prevents changes. Hmmm...

    Have you tried Repairing Permissions in Disk Utility or Onyx?

    Are we talking about a folder or about the startup disk? If I try to change permissions on the startup disk, then I have to click the lock to make a change.

    Note to self: DO NOT change the startup disk to no access for everyone. I was able to do that by clicking the lock, and it broke everything (stupid me, LOL). Had to boot from a clone, change the permissions back and run disk first aid. After that it restarted from the SSD but took forever. A second restart brought everything back to normal, phew! :)
