ssh Error - Must Be Owned By Root Not Group Or World

# /etc/init.d/sshd start
Starting sshd: /var/empty/sshd must be owned by root and not group or world-writable. [FAILED]
ERROR:Starting sshd: /var/empty/sshd must be owned by root and not group or world-writable.
check the file permission for /var/empty
If it is full permission then it won't work.

REASON:
/var/empty/sshd does not set the correct permission

SOLUTION
1)we have to set the correct permission 

#chmod go-w /var/empty
we have to remove the writable permission for group file name /var/empty- then only it should start sshd service perfectly.
