Fedora Update Notification

Name        : policycoreutils
Product     : Fedora 23
Version     : 2.4
Release     : 13.fc23
URL         : http://www.selinuxproject.org
Summary     : SELinux policy core 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.

policycoreutils contains the policy core utilities that are required
for basic operation of a SELinux system.  These utilities include
load_policy to load policies, setfiles to label filesystems, newrole
to switch roles.

Update Information:

As per the discussion on the selinux development mailinglist, the tmux
application expects the stdin to be writeable. Although perhaps not the most
proper way, having newrole opening the descriptor in read/write keeps the
behaviour in line with what applications expect.

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