Description cam 2010-05-23 12:41:23 UTC
Description of problem:
Misleading messages in selinux alerts - typos

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


How reproducible:
100%


Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to use rsync to write when selinux has not been configured to allow it
2. run sealert against the log message
  
Actual results:
See messages about ftp

Expected results:
See messages about rsync

Additional info:

The offending text containing ftp:


Allowing Access:

If ftp should be allowed to write to this directory you need to turn on the
allow_rsync_anon_write boolean and change the file context of the public
directory to public_content_rw_t. Read the rsync_selinux man page for further
information: "setsebool -P allow_rsync_anon_write=1; chcon -t
public_content_rw_t " You must also change the default file context files on the
system in order to preserve them even on a full relabel. "semanage fcontext -a
-t public_content_rw_t "
