Description Adam Huffman 2008-06-16 06:52:54 EDT
Description of problem:
Since upgrading to F9 I've been seeing selinux errors with SpamAssassin, which
is triggered by my .procmailrc.

This causes thousands of AVC messages, meaning I have to shutdown
setroubleshootd in order to make the system usable.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

This avc shows spamassassin tryint to bind to a udp socket 32230?

Is this expected behaviour?
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2008-06-22 08:40:22 EDT
You can allow this for now.

# audit2allow -M mypol -l -i /var/log/audit/audit.log
# semodule -i mypol.pp
Comment 4 Adam Huffman 2008-06-24 05:52:41 EDT
I'm assuming it's expected behaviour as I'm using SpamAssassin's defaults. 
Here's how it's triggered in .procmailrc:


and here's the content of that file:

# send mail through spamassassin
| /usr/bin/spamassassin

Here's the content of /etc/sysconfig/spamassassin:

# Options to spamd
SPAMDOPTIONS="-d -c -m5 -H"
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2008-06-24 06:04:26 EDT
Turn on the spamassassin_can_network boolean.

If you run your AVC though audit2why it shows

 audit2why -i /tmp/t
host=saintloup.smith.man.ac.uk type=AVC msg=audit(1213613494.259:1224): avc: 
denied  { name_bind } for  pid=5705 comm="spamassassin" src=32230
tcontext=system_u:object_r:port_t:s0 tclass=udp_socket

	Was caused by:
	One of the following booleans was set incorrectly.
	Allow user spamassassin clients to use the network.

	Allow access by executing:
	# setsebool -P spamassassin_can_network 1
	Allow system to run with NIS

	Allow access by executing:
	# setsebool -P allow_ypbind 1
