Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/lsof from using the 'sys_ptrace' capabilities.

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

If you believe that lsof should have the sys_ptrace capability 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
