Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 409711
Last modified: 2008-01-30 14:20:00 EST
Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/cups/backend/hp (cupsd_t) "getattr" to
SELinux denied access requested by /usr/lib/cups/backend/hp. It is not expected
that this access is required by /usr/lib/cups/backend/hp 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.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happens frequently when I print.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Print something
I have HPLIP (HP Imaging and Printing) v2.7.7 installed to support my wireless
HP Deskjet 6980 printer.
I will fix this in the next update, it was already fixed in Fedora 8 and Rawhide.
If you execute
chcon -t hplip_exec_t /usr/lib/cups/backend/hp*
It will fix it for now.
Fixed in selinux-policy-2.6.4-62.fc7
Bulk closing all bugs in Fedora updates in the modified state. If you bug is
not fixed, please reopen.
