:SELinux is preventing /sbin/dhclient from read, write access on the file /tmp/ffijp77VY (deleted).
:*****  Plugin catchall (50.5 confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that dhclient should be allowed read write access on the ffijp77VY (deleted) 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 dhclient /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
:*****  Plugin leaks (50.5 confidence) suggests  ******************************
:If you want to ignore dhclient trying to read write access the ffijp77VY (deleted) file, because you believe it should not need this access.
:Then you should report this as a bug.  
:You can generate a local policy module to dontaudit this access.
:# grep /sbin/dhclient /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -D -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
