Description Matěj Cepl 2010-08-01 22:43:18 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/perl "search" access on /var/spool/postfix.

Podrobný popis:

[spamd je v toleratním režimu (spamd_t). Přístup byl povolen.]

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

Povolení přístupu:

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 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-08-01 23:07:31 UTC
This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in 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. **

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2010-08-03 13:12:58 UTC
Should spamd be able to read the contents of /var/spool/postfix?

Comment 4 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-08-18 21:22:23 UTC
Thank you for your bug report. This issue was evaluated for inclusion
in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Unfortunately, we
are unable to address this request in the current release. Because we
are in the final stage of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 development, only
significant, release-blocking issues involving serious regressions and
data corruption can be considered.

If you believe this issue meets the release blocking criteria as
defined and communicated to you by your Red Hat Support representative,
please ask your representative to file this issue as a blocker for the
current release. Otherwise, ask that it be evaluated for inclusion in
the next minor release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

I never got a response on this?

I hope you won't expect it form me. Besides having no clue about Perl and Spamassassin I have also switched back to Fedora 14 and Thunderbird, so I am now reporter AWOL. Hopefully, Matthew will have more to say.
