CentOS 5 is dead. It has been End of Life for more than 1 year and no more fixes will be issued for it. You are strongly encouraged to migrate to a newer version - preferably CentOS 7 ASAP. CentOS 6 goes EOL in about 2 years and only critical security updates will be released for it during that time.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
