SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/perl "search" access on

Detailed Description:

[munin-limits has a permissive type (munin_t). This access was not denied.]

SELinux denied access requested by munin-update. It is not expected that this
access is required by munin-update 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 Daniel Walsh 2010-07-19 15:29:22 UTC
/usr/share/perl5/Exporter dir is labeled as a homedir.  This is wrong.

If restorecon -R -v /usr/share/perl5  does not fix the label, then reopen the bug.  It could be a user account in /etc/passwd has this as a homedir?

Comment 2 Donald Edward Winslow 2010-07-19 21:59:43 UTC
No, the directory is not listed in /etc/passwd. I restored configuration as you suggest.

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2010-07-20 13:46:17 UTC
Ok if it changes back to user_home_t reopen bug.

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2010-07-20 13:46:52 UTC
BTW, this can happen if you created the directory in your homedir and then mv'd it to a system directory.
