Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing wine-preloader from 'mmap_zero' accesses on the memprotect .

*****  Plugin mmap_zero (53.1 confidence) suggests  **************************

If you do not think wine-preloader should need to mmap low memory in the kernel.
Then you may be under attack by a hacker, this is a very dangerous access.
contact your security administrator and report this issue.

*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (42.6 confidence) suggests  *******************

If you want to control the ability to mmap a low area of the address space, as configured by /proc/sys/kernel/mmap_min_addr.
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'mmap_low_allowed' boolean.
You can read 'initrc_selinux' man page for more details.
setsebool -P mmap_low_allowed 1

*****  Plugin catchall (5.76 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that wine-preloader should be allowed mmap_zero access on the  memprotect 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 wine-preloader /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

The alert tells you what to do.  

Are you running a wine app as an init daemon?
Comment 2 Eric Paris 2013-06-07 11:08:14 EDT
application is the wine-preloader
