Description Tomas Hoger 2009-03-12 10:02:39 EDT
dbus patch for CVE-2008-4311 introduces logging of denied message bus messages.  To make the messages more useful, dbus-daemon reads /proc/*/cmdline and include its content in log message.  Such access is, however, prohibited by current selinux-policy in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.  To avoid AVCs for dbus log messages, policy should allow dbus-daemon to:

  domain_read_all_domains_state(system_dbusd_t)

Note: this fix is already included in selinux-policy in Rawhide / Fedora 11.
