Description Steve Grubb 2006-09-22 09:16:25 EDT
Description of problem:
This rule:

auditctl -a exclude,always -F msgtype=PATH -F msgtype=CWD

doesn't work as expected. msgtypes are anded by the kernel which means that
instead of suppressing the message, they are output. It should be 1 rule, 1
msgtype to work correctly.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above rule

This was fixed in audit-1.2.8. Thanks for reporting the problem.
Comment 2 James Laska 2006-12-14 08:07:56 EST
# rpm -q audit

# auditctl -a exclude,always -F msgtype=PATH -F msgtype=CWD
Only one msgtype may be given per rule

Is this the expected result?
