Question about PC Desktops
Your password file (papsecrets) has been given access to users outside your login.
This means someone could potentially hack your connection by gaining access to your papsecrets file.
User permissions for papsecrets needs to be reset to you only, and no global/group access should be allowed. Note: it is a hidden file but is in folder /etc/ppp/papsecrets
Restore the original permissions with:
# chmod a-rw /etc/ppp/papsecrets
# chmod u+rw /etc/ppp/papsecrets
Basically your operating system is defending you from sharing your internet passwords with the world.
