Description Reggy Ekkebus 2005-06-28 12:43:41 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
This is what i get when i start squid:

audit(1119976504.369:0): avc:  denied  { search } for  pid=3576 exe=/usr/bin/ntlm_auth name=samba dev=sda2 ino=145480 scontex
t=root:system_r:squid_t tcontext=system_u:object_r:samba_etc_t tclass=dir

This is propably due to enabling ntlm authentication in squid.

squid.conf:

auth_param ntlm program /usr/bin/ntlm_auth --helper-protocol=squid-2.5-ntlmssp
auth_param ntlm children 30
auth_param ntlm max_challenge_reuses 0
auth_param ntlm max_challenge_lifetime 2 minutes



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-2.88

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Put above config in your squid.conf
2.service squid start
  

Actual Results:  squid's ntlm helper is blocked

Expected Results:  squid's ntlm helper should not be blocked/denied

Additional info:

The error accurs a few times for every child.
