Description Marek Haicman 2017-06-21 16:26:16 EDT
Description of problem:
Rule xccdf_org.ssgproject.content_rule_mount_option_var_tmp_bind is currently defined in such way it cannot be remedied. OVAL checks runtime, and remediation deals solely with /etc/fstab.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make two entries into /etc/fstab, separately for /tmp and /var/tmp
2. run remediation
3. check runtime and contents of /etc/fstab

Actual results:
fstab is updated to include binding mount of /tmp to /var/tmp. Runtime is still failing

Expected results:
Runtime is fixed together with fstab, by remounting
