View Full Version : SE Linux + Teamviewer and mmap_zero issues

8th July 2012, 12:22 AM
I'm using teamviewer so I can remote in from my android. Long story short, Fedora keeps giving me this SELinux alert with the following details:

SELinux is preventing wine-preloader from mmap_zero access on the memprotect .

***** Plugin mmap_zero (53.1 confidence) suggests **************************

If you do not think wine-preloader should need to mmap low memory in the kernel.
Then you may be under attack by a hacker, this is a very dangerous access.
contact your security administrator and report this issue.

***** Plugin catchall_boolean (42.6 confidence) suggests *******************

If you want to mmap_low_allowed
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'mmap_low_allowed' boolean.You can read 'wine_selinux' man page for more details.
setsebool -P mmap_low_allowed 1

***** Plugin catchall (5.76 confidence) suggests ***************************

If you believe that wine-preloader should be allowed mmap_zero access on the memprotect by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep wine-preloader /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

I tried using "setsebool -P mmap_low_allowed 1" from the command line and nothing really happened. Processor use went way up but that's about it. So I tried "teamviewer setsebool -P mmap_low_allowed 1" as shown in the wine man page, but upong a restart I got the same error. Anything else I can try to get rid of this?

Nevermind. I think I got it. I let it sit for a few hours and it finished doing whatever. I havent gotten the error yet.
