I've never heard about Hamachi? Is that something I can install from a Fedora repo?
Comment 3 Martin Jürgens 2008-02-18 07:32:19 EST
No, it is not.. It is a proprietary VPN application, see
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2008-02-18 10:08:42 EST
This is a leaked file descriptor.

Hamachi should be closing all file descriptors on exec.

fcntl(fd, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC)

This can be ignored, as SELinux is closing the file descriptor before starting
ifconfig.  You can either dontaudit it or allow it using audit2allow, to get rid
of the message.

# audit2allow -M mypol -i /var/log/audit/audit.log 
# semodule -i mypol.pp
