The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
The selinux-policy packages contain the rules that govern how confined
processes run on the system.
This update fixes the following bug :
- An incorrect SELinux policy prevented the qpidd service
from starting. These selinux-policy packages contain
updated SELinux rules, which allow the qpidd service to
be started correctly.
- With SELinux in enforcing mode, the ssh-keygen utility
was prevented from access to various applications and
thus could not be used to generate SSH keys for these
programs. With this update, the 'ssh_keygen_t' SELinux
domain type has been implemented as unconfined, which
ensures the ssh-keygen utility to work correctly.
All users of selinux-policy are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which fix these bugs.
