Description Michal Nowak 2010-07-15 07:09:55 UTC

SELinux is preventing abrtd "unlink" access on /var/run/abrt.socket.

Detailed Description:

[SELinux is in permissive mode. This access was not denied.]

SELinux denied access requested by abrtd. It is not expected that this access is
required by abrtd 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 2 Milos Malik 2010-07-15 08:40:39 UTC
The abrt.socket file on your machine is mislabelled.

# matchpathcon  /var/run/abrt.socket
/var/run/abrt.socket	system_u:object_r:abrt_var_run_t:s0

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2010-07-15 12:47:21 UTC
Any idea how this happened?  Did you run abrt outside of the service script?

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2010-07-15 12:49:06 UTC
*** Bug 614751 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 5 Michal Nowak 2010-07-15 13:29:21 UTC
Yes. When testing the daemon I have to stop the service and start daemon this way manually, e.g. `abrtd -dvvv`.

Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2010-07-15 14:21:14 UTC
Well that will run it under a different context, causing these AVC messages.  If you run within an initrc_exec_t labeled shell it will work.  Or run

runcon -t initrc_t -- bash -c abrtd -dvvv

The right transitions will happen.

Comment 7 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-07-15 15:10:46 UTC
This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. It has
been denied for the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.

** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **
