The selinux_ip_postroute_iptables_compat function in security/selinux/hooks.c in the SELinux subsystem in the Linux kernel before 22.214.171.124, and 2.6.28.x before 126.96.36.199, when compat_net is enabled, omits calls to avc_has_perm for the (1) node and (2) port, which allows local users to bypass intended restrictions on network traffic. NOTE: this was incorrectly reported as an issue fixed in 188.8.131.52.
