Hello,

I Updated My Kernel Server ( CENTOS 5 ) To : 2.6.18-412.el5.centos.plus ( Latest Kernel via yum -y kernel update )

then i wget https://access.redhat.com/sites/default ... -5195_1.sh and run : bash rh-cve-2016-5195_1.sh

This Text Appear :

Your kernel is 2.6.18-412.el5.centos.plus which IS vulnerable.
Red Hat recommends that you update your kernel. Alternatively, you can apply partial
mitigation described at https://access.redhat.com/security/vuln ... es/2706661 .

There are no patches yet for RHEL5/CentOS 5. The status page says that there will be fixed versions but they have not yet been released by RH. You can apply the systemtap mitigation as described in that article or you can just wait until the newer kernels come out.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!

An update (2.6.18-416) was released today, so you should get it the next time you run yum update.
