Description Zdenek Sedlak 2010-06-10 18:25:45 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/cupsd "execute" access on rastertosamsungsplc.

Detailed Description:

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

Allowing Access:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://docs.fedoraproject.org/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Please file a bug

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2010-06-11 05:44:07 UTC
Where is 'rastertosamsungsplc' located? 

If under /usr/lib/cups/filter, then 'rastertosamsungsplc' is mislabeled and run

# restorecon -R -v /usr/lib/cups/filter

Please reopen bug if I am wrong.

Comment 2 Zdenek Sedlak 2010-06-11 06:37:27 UTC

the rastertosamsungsplc is located under both /usr/lib/cups/filter and /usr/lib64/cups/filter.

It's a filter installed by Samsung UnifiedPrinterDriver installer. I've executed the restorecon command to relabel both directories. 

I leave the bug closed at now, as I haven't got the same alert again (yet).
