Description Robert Trask 2003-03-20 20:03:20 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020823

Description of problem:
The redhat system security configuration tool always reports security level is
set to high.
This is misleading and confusing: it leads one to think security level is high
when it is not.
I suggest a better approach is to have the tool accurately reflect the state of
the system.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use system security config tool, set level to other than high
2.Revisit tool and note it reports security is set to high even though it is not!

Actual Results:  The condition is manifest!

Expected Results:  I expected teh config tool to accurately report the state of
the system.
