Summary0007459: elinks requires execmem
DescriptionI'm running CentOS 7 with execmem disabled in SELinux targeted policy. This prevents me from using elinks. The audit2why suggests that the elinks package has a security issue and that this should be reported to Bugzilla. Hence this bug report :)
Steps To Reproduce[root@centos ~]# rpm -q elinks
[root@centos ~]# elinks http://something
Segmentation fault
[root@centos ~]# tail -5 /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2why -e
type=AVC msg=audit(1407141567.126:185): avc: denied { execmem } for pid=1963 comm="elinks" scontext=root:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tcontext=root:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tclass=process

    Was caused by:
    The boolean deny_execmem was set incorrectly.
    Deny user domains applications to map a memory region as both executable and writable, this is dangerous and the executable should be reported in bugzilla

    Allow access by executing:
    # setsebool -P deny_execmem 0
[root@centos ~]#
TagsNo tags attached.
