:SELinux is preventing WorkerPool/3633 from using the 'ptrace' accesses on a process.
:*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (89.3 confidence) suggests  *******************
:If you want to deny_ptrace
:Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'deny_ptrace'boolean.
:setsebool -P deny_ptrace 0
:*****  Plugin catchall (11.6 confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that 3633 should be allowed ptrace access on processes labeled unconfined_t 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 WorkerPool/3633 /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2012-03-09 12:49:08 EST
This is not a bug, and is exactly what we are trying to preven apps ptracing processes.  

What does WorkerPool do?
