:SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/sshd from using the 'signal' accesses on a process.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that sshd should be allowed signal access on processes labeled chroot_user_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 sshd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Petr Lautrbach 2012-04-04 11:41:47 UTC
Please provide your sshd configuration:

# /usr/sbin/sshd -T

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2012-04-05 16:10:06 UTC
We should definitely allow this.  sshd should be allowed to kill the chroot_user_t process.
