Description Maciek Borzecki 2020-01-17 14:39:01 UTC
This bug was initially created as a copy of Bug #1659905

I am copying this bug because: 

The problem applies to RHEL7 proper too. (Did not check RHEL8 though)

Description of problem:

The /usr/lib/fontconfig/cache directly is labeled as lib_t, but should be labeled as fonts_cache_t, same as /var/cache/fontconfig.

[rhel@rhel ~]$ ls -laZ /usr/lib/fontconfig/cache/
drwxr-xr-x. root root system_u:object_r:lib_t:s0       .
drwxr-xr-x. root root system_u:object_r:lib_t:s0       ..
-rw-r--r--. root root unconfined_u:object_r:lib_t:s0   776e7a64-712f-4148-9c8b-2448af60fcac-le64.cache-7
-rw-r--r--. root root unconfined_u:object_r:lib_t:s0   CACHEDIR.TAG
-rw-r--r--. root root unconfined_u:object_r:lib_t:s0   eccd1891-6f9d-473b-accc-f0d46cf01f0d-le64.cache-7

[rhel@rhel ~]$ sudo semanage fcontext --list |grep /fontconfig
/var/cache/fontconfig(/.*)?                        all files          system_u:object_r:fonts_cache_t:s0 

Either a missing piece of the core policy or /usr/lib/fontconfig/cache ought to be created with proper labeling.

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

Comment 2 Lukas Vrabec 2020-01-17 15:20:59 UTC
This issue was not selected to be included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 because it is seen either as low or moderate impact to a small number of use-cases. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 is in Maintenance Support 1 Phase, which means that qualified Critical and Important Security errata advisories (RHSAs) and Urgent Priority Bug Fix errata advisories (RHBAs) may be released as they become available.

We will now close this issue, but if you believe that it qualifies for the Maintenance Support 1 Phase, please re-open; otherwise, we recommend moving the request to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 if applicable.
