Uploading images into my backend for a certain item now 404, it seems the permissions set for them are 0640 instead of 0644? Has an update broken this aswell?

Edit: They only 404 in the Backend, the store view is fine. Also noticed new images uploaded give permission 0666 instead of the usual 0644.

Thanks, Steve
