Description Joy Latten 2007-02-13 19:36:17 UTC
Description of problem:
In labeled ipsec, we check to see if selinux grants permissions to delete the
policy after the policy has been scheduled to be deleted. We should check
permissions first, and then delete the policy if granted.

How reproducible:
Occurs everytime you delete a labeled ipsec policy.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a labeled ipsec policy.
2.Delete the labeled ipsec policy as someone who should not be able to.
Actual results:
Policy is deleted, regardless of permissions.

Expected results:
Policy should be deleted if permissions granted.

I will be taking the responcibility for this bug and hopefully will have a patch
today.  There is no fix in LSPP.65

Comment 2 Eric Paris 2007-03-06 21:33:27 UTC
Fix is present in LSPP .66 and later.  Pushed upstream

will submit after accepted into an upstream tree.
