Fedora Update Notification
2015-10-03 17:32:22.208272

Name        : libselinux
Product     : Fedora 23
Version     : 2.4
Release     : 4.fc23
URL         : https://github.com/SELinuxProject/selinux/wiki
Summary     : SELinux library and simple utilities
Description :
Security-enhanced Linux is a feature of the Linux® kernel and a number
of utilities with enhanced security functionality designed to add
mandatory access controls to Linux.  The Security-enhanced Linux
kernel contains new architectural components originally developed to
improve the security of the Flask operating system. These
architectural components provide general support for the enforcement
of many kinds of mandatory access control policies, including those
based on the concepts of Type Enforcement®, Role-based Access
Control, and Multi-level Security.

libselinux provides an API for SELinux applications to get and set
process and file security contexts and to obtain security policy
decisions.  Required for any applications that use the SELinux API.

Update Information:

This improves the robustness of programs using selinux_check_access() in the
face of policy updates that alter the values of the class or permissions that
they are checking.  Otherwise, a policy update can trigger false permission
denials, as in bz 1264051

  [ 1 ] Bug #1264051 - selinux-policy-targeted-3.13.1-128.13.fc22 breaks systemctl, and prevents reboot

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program. Use
su -c 'yum update libselinux' at the command line.
