Scientific Linux Security Update : selinux-policy enhancement update on SL6.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 66774
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThis update adds the following enhancements :
Previously, the mysqld_safe script was unable to execute a shell (/bin/sh) with the shell_exec_t SELinux security context.
Consequently, the mysql55 and mariadb55 Software Collection packages were not working correctly. With this update, SELinux policy rules have been updated and these packages now work as expected.
This update has been placed in the security tree to avoid selinux bugs.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
