Why do these permissions not stay repaired?

I consistently repair the following permissions which appear in the next report as not fixed?  Any way to permanently resolve this?  It appears to me these particular permissions could be very harmful if not controlled:

    When you see:  Permissions repair complete

     

    That's all you need to see. They aren't errors, just messages.

    Did you ever change permissions on the hard drive and tell it to apply to enclosed?

    That would add an ACL to that file, but you'd likely have a whole lot more.

    You can see what the ACL is by running this command in Terminal:

    ls -ale /etc/hosts
    

    The ACL will be starting with 0:

    You can remove the ACL with

    chmod -N /private/etc/hosts
