Description Michael De La Rue 2007-01-31 21:28:22 UTC
Description of problem:
the files which sa-update creates have a security context (cron_var_lib_t) which
isn't available to spamassassin (spam_t)

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

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install spamassassin
2. run sa-update from /etc/cron.daily (e.g
/usr/share/spamassassin/sa-update.cron 2>&1 | tee -a /var/log/sa-update.log)
2.5 service spamassassin restart (part of script mentioned)
3. try to run spamc on a spam mail message (spamc < spam-mail)
4. setenforce 0
5. service spamassassin restart
6. spamc < spam-mail
Actual results:
spamc fails to correctly label mail as spam in step 3.  manages to label
correctly in step 6.

Expected results:
sa-update correctly labels files for use via spamassassin; spamc give same
results whether selinux is enforcing or not. 

Additional info:
a) there's a bug to get sa-update running by default (#219078)
b) restorecon thinks system_u:object_r:var_lib_t should be used in
/var/lib/spamassassin/3.001007/updates_spamassassin_org/ - that seems to improve
