Re: How to modify the policy?

I have a fc3 linux (kernel 2.6.10-1.770_FC3) with selinux enforced,

change_passwd, but got denied.  The system log shows:

Apr 14 09:42:59 pippo kernel: audit(1113489779.011:0): avc:  denied  {

setuid } for  pid=13211 exe=/usr/bin/chpasswd capability=7
tcontext=root:system_r:httpd_sys_script_t tclass=capability

I can use that plugin's command in ssh console, but just not from the web.
Should I change the targeted policy to make it working?  If yes, how to
modify the policy?

Thanks a lot!

The only way to do this currently is to install selinux-policy-targeted-sources.

Then you can edit apache rules to allow this priv. The problem with this is priv is that
it will allow Any cgi script to execute setuid applications. The best solution would be
to write policy for change_passwd and then have a domain transfer to this application.
