Description Ashish Shukla 2007-07-22 16:42:06 UTC
Description of problem:
When sending mail using "mail" got this SELinux AVC denial.

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

How reproducible:
Reproducible everytime.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute following command on shell:
   echo hi |mail -s hi root
Actual results:
Got SELinux AVC denial

Expected results:
Should get no SELinux AVC denial.

Additional info:
    SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/postfix/local (postfix_local_t) "read
    write" to (null) (unlabeled_t).

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by /usr/libexec/postfix/local. It is not
    expected that this access is required by /usr/libexec/postfix/local and this
    access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is also possible that the
    specific version or configuration of the application is causing it to
    require additional access.

Allowing Access
    Sometimes labeling problems can cause SELinux denials.  You could try to
    restore the default system file context for (null), restorecon -v (null) If
    this does not work, there is currently no automatic way to allow this
    access. Instead,  you can generate a local policy module to allow this
    access - see http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385 Or you
    can disable SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is
    not recommended. Please file a
    http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi against this package.
