dont do that !
you shuld never set files 777, except you want to follow microsofts
security model ;) rather keep the permissions as they are and make sure
the right user owns the file ;)
so rather do a:

sudo chown $USER $HOME/.ICEauthority

several KDE apps that run as root are rewriting the owner of that
