I have made a terrible mistake, in order to protect my privacy, i've done this.

$sudo chmod 600 $HOME/ -R

after that all stop working :) i mean i couldn't log in graphic mode.

so using the alt+ctrl+F1 I changed the permissions again to

$sudo chmod 755 $HOME/ -R

now all is working but i am wondering if my system is vulnerable
because of this.
will i have to reinstall all the ubuntu again?


thanks a lot.
