I have no idea, what's the matter with port 1024 (looks suspiciously like 2^10, but I don't what's the significance of such similarlity).


SELinux is preventing the npviewer.bin (nsplugin_t) from connecting to port

Podrobný popis:

SELinux has denied the npviewer.bin from connecting to a network port 1024 which
does not have an SELinux type associated with it. If npviewer.bin is supposed to
be allowed to connect on this port, you can use the semanage command to add this
port to a port type that nsplugin_t can connect to. semanage port -L will list
all port types. Please file a bug report
(http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi) against the selinux-policy
package. If npviewer.bin is not supposed to bind to this port, this could signal
a intrusion attempt.

Povolení přístupu:

If you want to allow npviewer.bin to connect to this port semanage port -a -t
PORT_TYPE -p PROTOCOL 1024 Where PORT_TYPE is a type that nsplugin_t can

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2009-11-18 05:52:14 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '10'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2009-12-18 02:41:51 EST
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
