Description of problem: Selinux is generating a bunch of alerts caused by gcm-apply when logging in to a fedora 13 vm that was fully updated a day ago.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: seems to happen on each reboot

Steps to Reproduce:
1. reboot fedora and log in
Actual results: security warnings

Expected results: no security warnings

Additional info:  Here's the clipboard dump from the selinux security alert application:


SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/gcm-apply "name_bind" access on <Unknown>.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by gcm-apply. The current boolean settings do
not allow this access. If you have not setup gcm-apply 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.

Allowing Access:

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_ypbind is set incorrectly.
Boolean Description:
Allow system to run with NIS

Fix Command:

# setsebool -P allow_ypbind 1

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2010-04-26 13:38:45 UTC
Are you running with NIS?

Comment 2 hal 2010-04-26 16:04:17 UTC
No - or at least not that I'm aware of.  This is an isolated virtual machine running under vmware fusion on a macbook pro OS X 10.6.  I did select a fair number of optional items during the install (mostly development tools), but other than that, I haven't added or configured anything beyond the installer defaults.

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2010-04-26 16:09:08 UTC
Ok, I am just wondering why gcm-apply would try to listen/bind on port 8614?

Comment 4 hal 2010-04-26 16:37:35 UTC
No idea.  Let me know if you want me to dig through any logs or other files looking for clues.

Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2010-04-29 14:13:21 UTC
Richard Hughes suggests that gcm-apply is calling sane_init which is causing this AVC.  He also states that it no longer needs to call this.  Can we get a version of gcm-apply that does not call sane_init?

Comment 6 Richard Hughes 2010-04-29 15:11:13 UTC
Could you grab the gnome-color-manager .src.rpm package from here please: http://people.freedesktop.org/~hughsient/fedora/13/SRPMS -- rebuild it and then install it, and then verify that it no longer produces a SELinux notice. Thanks.
