Description Matthew Thode ( prometheanfire ) archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2011-08-01 21:08:40 UTC
bashlogger logs all bash to /dev/log

This is currently being denied and probably should not be.

Reproducible: Always

Will be part of base policy r2.
Comment 2 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-08-19 20:52:26 UTC
in hardened-dev overlay
Comment 3 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-09-03 14:26:12 UTC
I'm going to pull this one again - upstream does not accept this rule.

I'll keep the bug open since I want to explain to users how they can make small adjustments to the policy themselves in a more manageable way (rather than audit2allow everything and having a gazzilion fix modules running).

So I don't forget...
