workaround:
# ls -al /oracle/102/bin/oracle

# chmod 6755 /oracle/oraccs/102/bin/oracle
# ls -al /oracle/102/bin/oracle
-rwsr-sr-x 1 oracle oinstall 110764906 Dec 28 00:38 /oracle/102/bin/oracle
Bounce database, fixed. Keep in mind it is only a workaround. 
Don't forget to run root.sh after installation.
