Description M. A. MacLain 2011-05-17 15:49:45 UTC
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/freshclam from 'open' accesses on the file /var/log/freshclam.log.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that freshclam should be allowed open access on the freshclam.log file by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep freshclam /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2011-05-18 05:36:35 UTC
# rpm -ql clamav-update |grep log

Could you please execute

# chcon -t freshclam_var_log_t /var/log/freshclam.log

Will fix for now.
