Description Jakub Filak 2016-11-03 06:54:50 UTC
Description of problem:
/usr/sbin/abrt-server has gained the capability to read process details of the process that is reporting an error and SELinux prevents abrt-server to access the /proc/[pid]/ns/ipc file which is used in two ways:

1. its value is compared to /proc/1/ns/ipc to detect own IPC namespace

2. its value is compared to all processes in the reporting process' parent hierarchy to identify the command that created the namespace

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install ABRT from the current upstream master
2. induce an uncaught Python exception (will_python_raise from the will-crash package)
