Root and whomever is in the group (second s) assigned to the file.

Also, should you need to find what to set a file to when you have an example file you can simply run stat on the example
and it will give you the numbers required.

Actually,
Code:
-rws--s---
means

1. owner can read/write/execute and it will be run as owner
2. group can execute and it will run as group: actually, it'll prob run as owner anyway. normally g=s is used for shared dirs, a different concept.
3. other (world) none
