home directories permissions

i think i did something wrong when installing debian because all home directories, including root, are readable by others. i manually chaged the permissions, but every new file created is set readable to others.
how can i set things right ?

<in your home directory>

debian:~# ls -la .b*
.bashrc ( if this file exist, do next )

debian:~# vi .bashrc


debian:~# _
