Description Adrin Jalali 2008-03-04 02:40:21 EST
Description of problem:
SELinux denied access requested by createaccount.c. It is not expected that this
access is required by createaccount.c 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 AccessYou can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see
FAQ Or you can disable SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux
protection is not recommended. Please file a bug report against this
package.Additional InformationSource

Comment 1 cje 2008-03-07 14:17:14 EST
this probably needs to be moved to component selinx-policy-mls.
Comment 2 Jon Stanley 2008-05-25 01:38:24 EDT
Changing component from bugzilla to selinux-policy-mls
Comment 3 Jon Stanley 2008-05-25 01:42:40 EDT
Forgot to click the reassignment button.
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2008-05-27 12:18:46 EDT
Is bugzilla allowed to send email?
Comment 5 John Berninger 2008-05-27 13:01:57 EDT
Yes - bugzilla can be configured to send email for any of several reasons.  It
is an expected behavior of the package.
Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2008-05-27 15:37:37 EDT
You can allow this for now by executing 

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

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.0.8-107.fc8
