Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Prior to this update, SELinux in permissive mode prevented the Google Chrome browser from reading the /etc/passwd file. Consequently, SELinux Access Vector Cache (AVC) denial messages were returned during Google Chrome runtime. SELinux policy rules have been updated with the "dontaudit" rule, thus fixing this bug.
