Description Daniel Walsh 2017-11-10 10:09:42 UTC
Tools that use containers-storage (Buildah) run as the unconfined user rather then running as container_runtime_t.  When unconfined user creates content in /var/lib/containers/storage it does not transition to the correct label.

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2017-11-10 10:11:15 UTC
Fixed in containers-selinux-2.32

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2017-11-21 15:27:49 UTC
Best way to test this is to

rm -rf /var/lib/containers/storage

# setenforce 1
# ctr=$(buildah from fedora)
# buildah run $ctr echo hello

If this works, then the bug is fixed.

You could also run

restorecon -R -v /var/lib/containers/storage

And you should see no mislabeled files.
