Description

An update for policycoreutils is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Low. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link (s) in the References section.

The policycoreutils packages contain the core policy utilities required to manage a SELinux environment.

Security Fix(es) :

  • policycoreutils: Relabelling of symbolic links in /tmp and /var/tmp change the context of their target instead (CVE-2018-1063)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS score, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in the References section.

This issue was discovered by Renaud Metrich (Red Hat).

Additional Changes :

For detailed information on changes in this release, see the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.5 Release Notes linked from the References section.
