These are all network daemons. This means they are subject to possibly malicious
traffic. If there is a hole in any of those apps that lets an intruder exploit
the app, SE Linux will probably prevent the problem. SE Linux has a basic
understanding of what the normal syscalls and files or system resources that are
used by the app. If it spots abnormal behavior, it can stop it.
