Scientific Linux Security Update : selinux-policy on SL5.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 61242
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe selinux-policy packages contain the rules that govern how confined processes run on the system.
This update fixes the following bug :
- With SELinux in enforcing mode, an Open MPI (Message Passing Interface) job submitted to the parallel universe environment failed when an attempt to generate SSH keys with the ssh-keygen utility was made. With this update, the 'ssh_keygen_t' SELinux domain type has been implemented as unconfined, which ensures the ssh-keygen utility to work correctly. (BZ#784782)
All users of selinux-policy are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
