Is there a way to secure /tmp /dev/shm and /var/tmp?
"Secure" is a pretty nebulous term. Are you after something beyond what chmod and chown offer or have you not tried them yet?
What can they be chmod to and still function for the apps that need to be able to write to them?
That depends entirely on what user the processes are executed as. The best solution would be to give each its own user account, make them the owner and disallow everyone else.
I think Cpanel is the only thing I'm running that uses them. Would 755 be the proper setting?
Then you probably shouldn't change anything.
Separate names with a comma.
