Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/lsof from 'getattr' accesses on the unix_dgram_socket .

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that lsof should be allowed getattr access on the  unix_dgram_socket by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep lsof /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 11 Moez Roy 2014-08-13 15:58:05 UTC
I think this problem is caused by the program rkhunter , which makes a cron job and tells wget to update its definitions ?

Comment 12 Daniel Walsh 2014-08-14 19:57:51 UTC
We probably want to add a transition from system_cronjob_t to unconfined_t or unconfined_service_t, to allow users to label content such that disabling unconfined.pp module would still allow scripts like rkhunter to work.

Otherwise you need to write policy to rkhunter.

Comment 13 Miroslav Grepl 2014-09-03 14:09:19 UTC
could you play with it if we can get it working with a transtion to unconfined_t?

Comment 14 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 12:36:28 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '20'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 15 Fedora End Of Life 2015-06-29 22:00:59 UTC
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
