Description Andrew John Hughes 2009-06-30 06:31:00 EDT
Description of problem:

SELinux is preventing ifconfig (ifconfig_t) "read" security_t.

Detailed Description:

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

Can you give me more specific steps how to reproduce this issue? What was the ifconfig command you've issued?
Comment 2 Andrew John Hughes 2009-06-30 09:09:29 EDT
I didn't, as mentioned above I received this when invoking vpnc (to connect to the Red Hat VPN)
Comment 3 Jiri Popelka 2009-07-01 08:20:44 EDT
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.6.12-57.fc11
