ssh-agent in group nobody

#1
I am trying to learn about my new VPS.

I see in Apache Cookbook, section 6-22, the recommendation to run:
find / -user nobody
find / -group nobody
to protect the server from malicious scripts

When I ran those on my VPS, the only thing weird I found is that ssh-agent is in group nobody.
Why is that?
Pretty much everything else in /usr/bin is in group root.

Just curious,
Louis

Anyone knows if I can safely change the permissions of ssh-agent to root.root
Any software depending on ssh-agent to be in group nobody?
Thanks,
Louis

I have no idea why it would need to be in that group, but unless you start a lot of outgoing SSH connections from your server it's probably never going to be used for anything.
