Cygwin affecting WIndows' security settings

Maninmoon
I am running Windows 7 64 bit with latest Cygwin.

When I edit a file the "unix" permissions remain unaltered, BUT
Windows Security gets set to "everyone". How can I stop this
behaviour?

It's not really clear what you're seeing, when, and as a result
of what operation/command.  More details are really necessary to
provide a more complete answer for you.  See the link below for
details on submitting problem reports.

Taking a wild guess, you're using Windows tools to operate on
a file.   If you want to do that and see consistent permissions
(i.e. ACLs) both with Cygwin tools and in the Windows environment,
you should check out the "noacl" mount option.  See:
