:SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/nspluginscan from 'execute' accesses on the file /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins-wrapped/nswrapper_64_64.libflashplayer.so.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that nspluginscan should be allowed execute access on the nswrapper_64_64.libflashplayer.so 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 nspluginscan /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2012-08-13 14:47:43 EDT
Did everything work ok?
Comment 2 ahmad.harthi@yahoo.com 2012-08-20 20:04:17 EDT
Yes, BUT... (I'm not familiar with SELinux, I did what it've suggested to me, adding an exception if I beleive these plugins shouldn't be blocked, and file a bug if I think the default behaviour is allowing access for those plugins)
Comment 3 Miroslav Grepl 2012-08-21 09:29:36 EDT
Ok, could you execute

# semodule -r mypol.pp
# grep nspluginscan /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -D -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

and make sure it still works. Thank you.

This rule will dontaudit this access.
