Description of problem:


SELinux is preventing libvirtd (virtd_t) "sigkill" to <Neznámé> (dnsmasq_t).

Podrobný popis:

SELinux denied access requested by libvirtd. It is not expected that this access
is required by libvirtd 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.

Povolení přístupu:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Or you can disable
SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not recommended.
Please file a bug report (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi)
against this package.

How did you get this error, i.e. how to reproduce the problem ? Any idea ?


Comment 2 Daniel Berrange 2008-03-06 13:06:06 UTC
Dan, can you add ability for libvirtd  to send KILL/TERM to  dnsmasq to the
SELinux policy, because we spawn / kill  dnsmasq processes from libvirtd to
provide DHCP/DNS services.

Hi, Daniel,

nothing special, just restarted my computer with libvirtd service on, and then
filed (as usual) everything in sealert here. Notice, that I haven't even started
any virtual machine on the computer.

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.3.1-11.fc9
