                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Important: fapolicyd bug fix update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2020:5609-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2020:5609
Issue date:        2020-12-17
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for fapolicyd is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.1
Extended Update Support.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AppStream EUS (v. 8.1) - aarch64, ppc64le, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

The fapolicyd software framework introduces a form of file access control
based on a user-defined policy. The application file access control feature
provides one of the most efficient ways to prevent running untrusted and
possibly malicious applications on the system.

Bug Fix:

* When an update replaces the binary of a running application, the kernel
modifies the application binary path in memory by appending the "
(deleted)" suffix. Previously, the fapolicyd file access policy daemon
treated such applications as untrusted, and prevented them from opening and
executing any other files. As a consequence, the system was sometimes
unable to boot after applying updates.

With this update, fapolicyd ignores the suffix in the binary path so the
binary can match the trust database. As a result, fapolicyd enforces the
rules correctly and the update process can finish.

(BZ#1906474)

Note: The issue from BZ#1906474 was previously addressed in erratum
RHBA-2020:5241 linked to from the References section. Due to the high
impact of the issue that can cause systems to become unable to boot, we are
releasing the same fix again in a security erratum to ensure proper
visibility to users who only install security updates. This fix has not
been changed in any way since the original bug fix erratum. This erratum
does not provide any security fixes.

For more details about the issue, see the Knowledgebase article linked from
the References section.
