Smile /var/log/messages growing tremendously


Hi, I can see the below mentioned logs writing every second into /var/log/messages.

"setroubleshoot: SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/perl from ioctl access on the file /usr/share/perl5/Exporter.pm. For complete SELinux messages. run sealert -l e6a1fd7e-a8c0-44bc-91db-b550f85f31c2"

Can anyone help me to find the root cause of this and how to fix it also?

Thanks in advance,

George

Which distro do you use? Fedora, Rhel or CentOS.

This is a message generated by SeLinux Kernel protection component. Selinux is used as MAC.
