Description Andy Lutomirski 2016-01-07 20:19:46 EST
Per FPC ticket #467 (https://fedorahosted.org/fpc/ticket/467), these programs should be world-readable.  Please set the modes to 4755 instead of 4750.
Comment 1 Steve Grubb 2016-01-19 13:31:54 EST
The reason that these files have the permissions they do is because of common criteria requirements. I try to keep Fedora and RHEL closely sync'ed to cut down excess work and potential mistakes. To open the permissions I need to go add if(geteuid!=0) _exit(1); all over the place.
Comment 2 Steve Grubb 2016-01-19 13:49:21 EST
Also, I'm curious about something, is this being requested because of containers? Is auditd being 755 all you need?
Comment 3 Andy Lutomirski 2016-01-19 14:10:46 EST
I want it for virtme, which is like a container, although it uses different technology under the hood.  I actually care about auditctl being world-readable more than auditd, but both would be nice.

I use capability to test audit-affecting kernel changes, among other things.
Comment 4 Steve Grubb 2016-01-19 14:24:35 EST
OK. I think I can relax the permissions on those two. I'll make the change in git and the next time rawhide gets a rebuild, it'll be pushed out.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

New packages have been pushed out for a month or two. I am closing this under the assumption that its working fine.
