Description Peter Trenholme 2016-03-09 00:41:21 EST
Description of problem: See summary

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Latest rawhide

How reproducible: Didn't try, but it happened three times.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system
2. Wait for selinux report

Actual results: Attempt to write to a really strange directory 

Expected results: No idea.

Additional info: I have no idea what the "fwupd" is attempting to write. (Is this a firmware update daemon?). Anyhow, I couldn't specify any "severity," but I suspect it's just an uninitialized string problem, and easily fixed.

Excerpt from the selinux report: (Note that I run my "rawhide" system, in "permissive" mode so this sort of problem is not catastrophic.)

Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2016-03-31 11:39:55 EDT
fwupd reads the device firmware at startup. We've switched to doing this when the user explicitly verifies the firmware in >= 0.6.3
