File permissions mysteriously changed

Report
Question

I just had a weird experience. My Asterisk installation stopped
working, and upon investigation I found that the ownership of several
files had changed from asterisk:asterisk to root:root. The files in
question were: /etc/asterisk/extensions.conf
/etc/asterisk/features.conf
/etc/asterisk/rtp.conf
/etc/asterisk/sip.conf
/etc/asterisk/voicemail.conf
/var/log/asterisk/cdr-csv/Master.csv
/var/spool/asterisk/astdb Asterisk has been running for quite a while (several weeks at least)
since I last modified any of the configuration files. I did reboot earlier today when I was unable to cleanly stop BIND on
this box. (32-bit Scientific Linux 6.1, BTW.) Anyone have any idea what just happened?…
