Description Flóki Pálsson 2010-08-27 01:12:11 UTC

SELinux is preventing /bin/bash "execute" access on /bin/mountpoint.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by dhclient-script. It is not expected that this
access is required by dhclient-script 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 2 Miroslav Grepl 2010-08-27 11:26:14 UTC
Not sure why dhclient-script is trying to execute mountpoint.

You can execute

chcon -t bin_t /bin/mountpoint

Comment 7 Jon Masters 2010-09-16 14:40:09 UTC
And rawhide? What's the situation there? I'm still seeing this problem.

Comment 8 Daniel Walsh 2010-09-16 15:53:01 UTC
What policy do you have on rawhide?  What is the label on /bin/mountpoint

ls -lZ /bin/mountpoint

I am trying to keep policy the same on F14 and Rawhide.

Comment 9 Jon Masters 2010-09-17 04:03:07 UTC
-rwxr-xr-x. root root system_u:object_r:bin_t:s0       /bin/mountpoint

Still getting audit logs on this though.

Comment 10 Jon Masters 2010-09-17 04:04:46 UTC
Oh, and I am using the "target" policy with this version:


Comment 11 Jon Masters 2010-09-17 04:05:34 UTC
It's possible it was a stale alert. I reset the context on that mountpoint executable, so let's see if it occurs again tomorrow.

Comment 12 Jon Masters 2010-09-21 05:03:33 UTC
Doesn't seem to be re-occuring any more. Thanks.
