Description Bruce M. Kantor 2008-04-12 15:03:54 EDT
Description of problem:

mimedefang 2.64
sendmail 8.14.2

SELinux is preventing sendmail (sendmail_t) "getattr" to
/var/spool/MIMEDefang/mimedefang.sock (var_spool_t).

Detailed Description:

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

Comment 1 Robert Scheck 2008-04-12 17:15:34 EDT
Reassigning to selinux-policy, as it has to be fixed there. Daniel, are you
able to take care about it? It is a mimedefang specific thing which is not yet
handled in the policy.
