Scientific Linux Security Update : selinux-policy on SL6.x i386/x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

This update adds the following enhancements :

- When the system produces a new SELinux denial, the
setroubleshootd daemon executes the rpm tool to check
information about the relevant packages. Previously,
setroubleshootd was unable to execute the rpm tool, and
AVC denials were logged in the /var/log/audit/audit.log
file. With this update, the relevant policy has been
corrected so that SELinux denials are no longer produced
in the described scenario.

- A number of additional enhancements have provided by
upstream in this release.

This update has been placed in the security tree to avoid system
issues related to possible changes in how the applications interface
with the selinux policy.
