Description Tom London 2007-12-27 20:57:53 EST
Description of problem:
I repeatably get an execmem AVC and a crash of firefox (says gecko) when I visit
'http://www.amazon.com' with SELinux in enforcing mode.  In permissive mode, I
get the same AVC, but no crash.

Here is the AVC:

type=AVC msg=audit(1198806680.330:36): avc:  denied  { execmem } for  pid=8057
comm="firefox" scontext=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0
tcontext=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0 tclass=process
type=SYSCALL msg=audit(1198806680.330:36): arch=40000003 syscall=125 success=yes
exit=0 a0=b0b24000 a1=1000 a2=5 a3=bfa6b78c items=0 ppid=1 pid=8057 auid=500
uid=500 gid=500 euid=500 suid=500 fsuid=500 egid=500 sgid=500 fsgid=500
tty=(none) comm="firefox" exe="/usr/lib/firefox-3.0b3pre/firefox"
subj=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0 key=(null)

Could you try to run firefox by "xulrunner
Comment 3 Tom London 2008-01-03 09:27:26 EST

Well, I have 32-bit version, so I tried "xulrunner
/usr/lib/firefox-3.0b3pre/application.ini" instead.

This appears to work OK, while running "firefox" crashes with above AVC.

[Both on 'www.amazon.com']
Comment 4 Andrew Farris 2008-01-29 06:40:51 EST
Running xulrunner directly that way wouldn't load the extensions or plugins
would it?  Looks very much like a problem I had with an older flash lib getting

You do have a flash plugin loading: "/usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so"

You might try it from a freshly created user account, which must create its own
new profile as well.

I haven't seen this for a while.
