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 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!

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

It is disappointing that in a world where security/data protection etc. is ever more important we still do not have UPDATEINFO.XML in the officical CentOS repos

In such case, you can donate some of your time and provide a solution that will match the Red Hat's solution.

And in any case, since about 90% of updates that are released outside of point release times are ALL security related, just running yum update is good enough.
