Unable to start FileBeat Due to Restrictions

Hi Team,

I have been trying to start the file beat but getting the following error while starting.

Exiting: error loading config file: config file ("filebeat.yml") can only be writable by the owner but the permissions are "-rwxrwx---" (to fix the permissions use: 'chmod go-w /home/dev/Desktop/filebeat-7.1.0-linux-x86_64.tar/filebeat-7.1.0-linux-x86_64/filebeat.yml')

Please find the access for the file
[dev@devlinux filebeat-7.1.0-linux-x86_64]$ ls -al filebeat.yml
-rwxrwx--- 1 dev dev 7779 May 24 07:20 filebeat.yml

Please help in starting the file beat.

Did you try the chmod like the error permission suggested?
The dev group currently has write permission on filebeat.yml, which filebeat doesn't allow.
