Description Frank Murphy 2010-07-21 09:49:27 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/perl "execute" access on /usr/sbin/exim.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by logwatch. It is not expected that this access
is required by logwatch 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 Frank Murphy 2010-07-21 09:50:28 UTC
Happens after a reboot.

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2010-07-21 12:48:22 UTC
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.8.8-2.fc14

Comment 3 Joe Christy 2010-07-31 17:31:37 UTC
Any chance of getting this fixed in F13?

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2010-08-03 17:58:00 UTC
I think it is in selinux-policy-3.7.19-42.fc13
