Description Nicolas Mailhot 2009-09-16 22:59:43 UTC
The following was filed automatically by setroubleshoot:


SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/sound-juicer "execstack" access on <Unknown>.

Description détaillée:

SELinux denied access requested by sound-juicer. The current boolean settings do
not allow this access. If you have not setup sound-juicer to require this access
this may signal an intrusion attempt. If you do intend this access you need to
change the booleans on this system to allow the access.

Autoriser l'accès:

Confined processes can be configured to run requiring different access, SELinux
provides booleans to allow you to turn on/off access as needed. The boolean
allow_execstack is set incorrectly.
Boolean Description:
Allow unconfined executables to make their stack executable. This should never,
ever be necessary. Probably indicates a badly coded executable, but could
indicate an attack. This executable should be reported in bugzilla")

Commande de correction:

# setsebool -P allow_execstack 1

Comment 1 Nicolas Mailhot 2009-09-16 23:00:39 UTC
while playing a simple cd

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2009-09-17 17:50:56 UTC
Sound Juicer should not require execstack.

Nicolas you can turn on the boolean to listen to the cd.

Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2009-09-17 18:00:26 UTC
Why does it say "totem" at one point and "sound-juicer" for the other?

In any case, this is likely due to 3rd party plugins. Remove your gstreamer plugins from /usr/lib*/gstreamer-0.10 one-by-one to see which one is causing problems.

I'd start by removing gstreamer-ffmpeg and the -bad and -ugly variants, and see if you can reproduce the problem.

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2009-09-17 20:12:31 UTC
totem versus sound-juicer looks like a bug in setroubleshoot.  The avc is about sound-juicer

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2009-11-16 12:31:53 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.

Haven't seen those for a long time
