Well the main known issue with it is that it's not the current version. CentOS 6.9 was released on 5th April 2017 (based on RHEL 6.9 from 21st March) so you are at least 6 months behind on updates and since 6.8 is from May 2016, possibly as much as 17 months.

You can look at the Redhat Errata page for RHEL 6 and see what things have been fixed and when https://access.redhat.com/errata/#/?q=& ... _version=6
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
