Description of problem:
For nagios, there exists a nagios_unconfined_plugin_exec_t file context that can be used for plugins that not yet have a dedicated context.
But, the current policy assigns bin_t to all files in /usr/lib(64)?/nagios/plugins that does not have a specific context. By comparison, munin plugins in
/usr/share/munin/plugins that does not have a specific selinux file context get unconfined_munin_plugin_exec_t automatically.
Doing the same for nagios plugins would make life easier for those who build a lot of there own plugins.
Three files in /usr/lib(64)?/nagios/plugins from the nagios-plugins package get the context bin_t from the current policy so something like replacing:
should do the trick.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Yes, good point.
