Description Nicolas Mailhot 2009-09-13 10:09:30 UTC
The following was filed automatically by setroubleshoot:


SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/gpg "ipc_lock" access.

Description détaillée:

[gpg has a permissive type (system_cronjob_t). This access was not denied.]

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

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ

allow system_cronjob_t self:capability ipc_lock;

Comment 1 Nicolas Mailhot 2009-09-13 10:10:23 UTC
triggered by a monthly

/usr/bin/gpg --refresh-keys --keyserver pgpkeys.mit.edu

in the user crontab

Comment 2 Nicolas Mailhot 2009-09-13 10:12:08 UTC
(there are other avcs related to this command, I won't report them just test this)

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2009-09-14 16:13:49 UTC
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.6.31-4.fc12.noarch


	cron_system_entry(gpg_t, gpg_exec_t)

Which should transition system_cronjob_t to gpg, might cause additional avc messages though.
