Description Sverre Nyheim 2010-08-16 15:09:53 UTC

SELinux is preventing
"read" access on fifo_file.

Detailed Description:

[hadsm3_6.08_i68 has a permissive type (boinc_project_t). This access was not

SELinux denied access requested by hadsm3_6.08_i68. It is not expected that this
access is required by hadsm3_6.08_i68 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

It was fixed in selinux-policy-3.7.19-47.fc13.noarch. Updated packages are now available from update repo.

yum update selinux-policy-targeted
