Description of problem:
SELinux warning when logging in to Hamachi.
I have Hamachi installed. When I log in, I get that SELinux warning.
Created attachment 197211 [details]
I've never heard about Hamachi? Is that something I can install from a Fedora repo?
No, it is not.. It is a proprietary VPN application, see
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
