If you set a file to 755, then how does bad guy do bad things with it?

Certainly, with 755 the owner can do anything he wants (read, write, execute), but the “group” and “everyone else” can only read and execute (5) the file — there is no “write” to the file. Without a “write”, then how can a bad guy change/upload a file?

There is something here I am not understanding. Please explain.
