Keep getting false security errors


here is a snip of my syslog file:

The world writable section goes on for the next couple thousand lines listing everything in my shared directories. I know these are world writable, so is there any way of telling linux that it's ok for these files to be world writable? same thing for the port listing. Just figured if there's some way to tell it not to worry about it.
