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

This script is Copyright (C) 2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

This update fixes the following bug :

- When using some versions of Quantum with netns support,
SELinux denied various operations, which caused Quantum
to fail. AVCs did not appear unless in permissive mode,
due to a 'dontaudit' rule for these operations. With
this update, SELinux no longer denies operations using
Quantum with netns support and failures no longer occur
in the described scenario.
