DLP Insecure Windows findings

Our ACAS scanner found a High vulnerability with DLP Endpoint. fcags.exe has modify permissions on Authenticated Users, should be Read permissions. DLP has been removed from the machine reinstalled and rebooted. ACAS summary: "At least one Windows service executable with insecure permissions was detected on the remote host. Services configured to use an executable with weak permissions are vulnerable to privilege escalation attacks. An unprivileged user could modify or overwrite the executable with arbitrary code, which would be executed the next time the service is started. Depending on the user that the service runs as, this could result in privilege escalation. This plugin checks if any of the following groups have permissions to modify executable files that are started by Windows services : - Everyone - Users - Domain Users - Authenticated Users" Does anyone else out there have a similar issue?
