Summary: SELinux blocks failtoban


           Summary: SELinux blocks failtoban
           Product: Fedora Hosted Projects
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i686
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: medium
          Priority: low
         Component: Security_Guide
        AssignedTo: mhideo redhat com
        ReportedBy: somedamfool yahoo com

    Classification: Fedora

Description of problem: SELinux interfering with failtoban

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

How reproducible:With failtoban enabled SELinux generates an error every 5-10
seconds. I had over 9600 errors in about 24 hours.

Summary: SELinux is preventing gam_server (fail2ban_t) "read" to ./rpm

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by gam_server. It is not expected that this
access is required by gam_server and this access may signal an intrusion
attempt. It is also possible that the specific version or configuration of the
application is causing it to require additional access.

Allowing Access:

Sometimes labeling problems can cause SELinux denials. You could try to restore
the default system file context for ./rpm,

restorecon -v './rpm'

If this does not work, there is currently no automatic way to allow this
Instead, you can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Or you can disable
SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not recommended.
Please file a bug report (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi)
against this package.
