SELinux is preventing /sbin/dhclient "read" access on

Detailed Description:

[dhclient has a permissive type (dhcpc_t). This access was not denied.]

SELinux denied access requested by dhclient. It is not expected that this access
is required by dhclient 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 2010-07-07 08:32:45 UTC
Which tool are you using to launch ifup/dhclient? It looks like leaked file descriptors from this tool.

The tool needs to close all file descriptors before execing these commands.

You can add these rules for now using

# grep avc /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
