Description Che Gonzalez 2005-04-28 20:11:04 EDT
Description of problem:

At first, I thought of logging this bug in as an selinux bug since testing my
strict policy fails on the line "allow rhgb_t etc_t:dir mounton;".  However
after looking at the log entry below, I wondered if any process, other than some
remote workstation process, should have mounton anywhere near /etc.  

Apr 28 19:32:54 xix kernel: audit(1114716755.277:0): avc:  denied  { mounton }
for  path=/etc/rhgb/temp dev=dm-0 ino=17467378 scontext=system_u:system_r:rhgb_t
tcontext=system_u:object_r:etc_t tclass=dir

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

How reproducible:
On Boot

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set selinux policy to strict and permissive
2. Reboot
3. See /var/log/messages for avc message of rhgb_t accessing /etc/rhgb/temp
Actual results:
rhgb_t attempts to access /etc/rhgb/temp

Expected results:
rhgb_t should access /tmp/rhgb

Additional info:
maybe a strict policy update is required for rhgb

Reassigned to selinux-policy-strict.
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2005-04-29 13:50:27 EDT
/etc/rhgb/temp is mislabeled.  Should be mnt_t

restorecon -R -v /etc/rhgb
