Description Michael De La Rue 2007-01-27 09:52:52 UTC
Description of problem:
Procmail is not allowed to run /bin/ls, which is needed by a standard procmail
rule.  Either this rule should not be recommended or this usage should be allowed.  

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

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. add backup system to personal procmailrc according to procmailex manual page:

:0 c

:0 ic
| cd backup && rm -f dummy `ls -t msg.* | sed -e 1,45d`

2. allow mail to arrive

Actual results:
avc: denied { signull } for comm="zsh" egid=500 euid=500 exe="/bin/zsh" exit=-13
fsgid=500 fsuid=500 gid=500 items=0 pid=5555
scontext=system_u:system_r:procmail_t:s0 sgid=500
subj=system_u:system_r:procmail_t:s0 suid=500 tclass=process
tcontext=system_u:system_r:procmail_t:s0 tty=(none) uid=500 

Expected results:
Since this is a standard recommended use of procmail, the use should be
permitted by default.  Alternatively, the procmail manual should have a
different example.  E.g. you could do just the same thing 

Additional info:
work around 
1. put above audit message into a file (e.g. procmail-fixme.avc)
2. audit2allow -M procmail   < procmail-fixme.avc
3. semodule -i procmail.pp

Comment 1 Michael De La Rue 2007-01-27 10:14:15 UTC
oops.. wrong message cut and paste (though the other one should probably be
allowed too??) 

type=AVC msg=audit(1169892578.898:246): avc:  denied  { execute } for  pid=3904
comm="zsh" name="ls" dev=dm-0 ino=349198

Comment 2 Michael De La Rue 2007-01-27 11:22:19 UTC
Created attachment 146743 [details]
actual audit log messages running with enforce off and basic policy

just learning how to do it properly.. this seems to be what that should be fed
into audit2allow.

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2007-01-29 18:36:31 UTC
Fixed in selinux-policy-2.4.6-33
