CentOS Security Update for kernel (CESA-2018:3651)

Post by claysql » 2019/04/08 17:43:17

My security team ran a scan of my servers and it found that I need to install CVE-2018-14633 and CVE-2018-14646. I tried doing this via yum but it appears that this is not possible. How do I update/install CVEs?

By running yum update to update everything. There is no security related metadata in the CentOS yum repos to allow yum-plugin-security to operate.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!

You can check Red Hat's CVE-2018-14633
So , you just need to update to the latest patches and reboot.

CentOS does not have official errata: the CentOS upstream repos do not have an UPDATEINFO.XML

So I followed the steps at http://updateinfo.cefs.steve-meier.de
