sudo: /private/etc/sudoers is mode 0666, should be 0440

sudo: no valid sudoers sources found, quitting

Open terminal and type:

diskutil repairpermissions /

 

If this does not correct your issues, you can correct this file in Single User Mode.

Restart using the boot-flag -s

 

Then type:

/sbin/mount -wu /

chown -R 440 /private/etc/sudoers

 

Restart using the boot-flag -v
