Description Qian Cai 2019-03-15 14:18:06 UTC
Description of problem:
# sesearch --allow | grep 'svirt_sandbox_domain unconfined_service_t'
allow svirt_sandbox_domain unconfined_service_t:fd use;
allow svirt_sandbox_domain unconfined_service_t:fifo_file { append getattr ioctl lock open read write };
allow svirt_sandbox_domain unconfined_service_t:process sigchld;

Those rules (unsafe) were dropped in RHEL-7.6.2 but still are there in RHEL8.
