Description Milos Malik 2010-08-13 07:06:02 UTC
Description of problem:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
selinux-policy-mls-3.7.19-38.el6.noarch
selinux-policy-targeted-3.7.19-38.el6.noarch
selinux-policy-doc-3.7.19-38.el6.noarch
selinux-policy-3.7.19-38.el6.noarch
selinux-policy-minimum-3.7.19-38.el6.noarch

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
# 
  
Actual results:
In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5 and 6, domain_disable_trans Booleans are available to prevent an application from transitioning to a confined domain, and therefore, the process runs in an unconfined domain, such as initrc_t. Turning such Booleans on can cause major problems. For example, if the httpd_disable_trans Boolean is turned on:

Additional info:
To make some domain permissive in RHEL-6 we should use "semanage permissive -a ..."

# getsebool -a | grep -i disable_trans
