Bug Fix Advisory mcstrans bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2008:0258-5
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2008-05-09
Last updated on: 2008-05-09
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux EUS (v. 5.1.z server)

Details

An updated mcstrans package that fixes a bug is now available.

mcstrans provides a translation daemon to translate SELinux categories from
internal representations to user-defined representations.

When the "/etc/selinux/mls/setrans.conf" file contained a
"SystemLow-SystemHigh" range, and the the Multi-level Security (MLS)
policy was used, mcstransd incorrectly translated certain MLS labels,
resulting in commands such as "id -Z" returning incorrect output, for
example, "SystemLow:SystemLow-SystemHigh".

In this updated package, mcstransd correctly translates MLS labels, even
when a "SystemLow-SystemHigh" range is included in "setrans.conf".

Users of mcstrans are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
resolves this issue.
