Upon starting BRU PE, prompt is displayed telling the user that "System Drive Corruption Detected", as shown below.
Users that have a non-corrupt Python binary (in some installations it is corrupt), users can download the "damage_check" script. This script will step through each of the major system binary folders of /bin, /sbin, /usr/bin, and /usr/sbin. It also goes a step farther and checks /usr/share/zoneinfo (yes, the Timezone folder). This is because we have seen corruption still cause problems if left undetected. These five locations are the most prevalent locations and the locations where the most damage can be done.

Permissions operation now?
