I have a situation where a user needs to access a file this user is a SUDO user.  This
Is how this process work User (A) transfers the file via FTP User (B) is to take the file
And work with it.

But user (B) cannot access the file unless the file is set to 777, User (A,B) are not in the
Same group for security reasons and I we can’t keep the permission of the file 777 for
The same reasons. Ideally I would like the file to be set to 640.  SUDO having many
Feature I was wondering if there isent one that could help in this issue.

Thank you
 Dan
