Description Linda Knippers 2007-04-05 02:53:33 UTC
Description of problem:
The buffer used to construct the DAEMON_CONFIG isn't big enough
for some lspp subject contexts, causing the results to be truncated.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.On an lspp system, have a context that's fairly long (could be lots of
compartments, for example) some audit management
Actual results:
type=DAEMON_CONFIG msg=audit(1175743730.429:9233) config changed, auid=500
pid=15992 subj=staff_u:lspp_test_r:lspp_harness_t:s0-s15:c0.c1023 res=succe
type=DAEMON_CONFIG msg=audit(1175727102.355:3465) config changed, auid=500
pid=3100 subj=staff_u:lspp_test_r:lspp_harness_t:s0-s15:c0.c1023 res=succes

Expected results:
The full record should appear, including the res=success

Additional info:
The buffer used for these messages in auditd-event.c is only 128 bytes.

Revised test case for targeted.

As root:
1) setenforce 0
2) runcon -l s0:c0,c2,c4,c6,c8,c10,c12,c14,c16,c18,c20,c22,c24,c26,c28,c30 sh
3) killall -HUP auditd
4) ausearch --start recent -m DAEMON_CONFIG

record will be truncated.

built audit-1.3.1-4 to address this issue.

Comment 6 Linda Knippers 2007-04-11 16:42:54 UTC
I upgraded to audit-1.3.1-4.el5 and now I see the full DAEMON_CONFIG
audit record.  Thanks.
