Fedora Update Notification
2015-09-06 17:04:34.357254

Name        : libsemanage
Product     : Fedora 23
Version     : 2.4
Release     : 4.fc23
URL         : https://github.com/SELinuxProject/selinux/wiki
Summary     : SELinux binary policy manipulation library
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.

libsemanage provides an API for the manipulation of SELinux binary policies.
It is used by checkpolicy (the policy compiler) and similar tools, as well
as by programs like load_policy that need to perform specific transformations
on binary policies such as customizing policy boolean settings.

Update Information:

When a user changed some of SELinux variables and didn't run 'semodule -B'
after, all new files in homes became default_t. This update fixes it. For better
description see https://bugs.gentoo.org/558686  Note: you need to run 'semodule
-B' first to regenetate homedir files to have this update correctly running.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program. Use
su -c 'yum update libsemanage' at the command line.
For more information, refer to "Managing Software with yum",
available at https://docs.fedoraproject.org/yum/.
