Re: Questions regarding vulnerabilities CVE-2022-0185 and CVE-2021-4034

Red Hat backport fixes to both CentOS 7 and 8 still. Red Hat backport enhancements and new features only for CentOS 8 (CentOS 7 has moved out of the relevant maintenance phase to get such active support).

Re: Questions regarding vulnerabilities CVE-2022-0185 and CVE-2021-4034

Regarding CVE-2022-0185, I see RedHat mentioning that kernels of RHEL 7 are not affected but it doesn't mention any specific kernel version
The bug was introduced in 5.1-rc1 so a 3.10 kernel is not affected.

All versions of polkit everywhere on everything are affected by CVE-2021-4034.

Re: return to classic kernel from kernel plus

1. i tried to "yum reinstall <KERNEL_NUMBER>" - Skipping the running kernel .
As I said, you need to boot a different kernel before you can remove this one.

The CentOS 6 forums are now closed

As it is now more than 1 year since CentOS 6 went EOL, we have closed the CentOS 6 forums and made them read only. You should no longer run CentOS 6. It is unsafe to do so as it is missing at least one whole year of security patches and the older it gets, the more insecure it will become. The yum re...

Re: return to classic kernel from kernel plus

You can change which kernel boots at boot time, no need to alter the config file. Though you can if you'd rather.

Re: CVE-2021-39275 patch availability

I'm told that has been pushed live now. It'll be on the master server soon then going out to the various mirrors which can take anything from 30 mins to 30 hours (!) to catch up. Doing a yum clean all/yum update should accelerate the detection of the update.

Re: return to classic kernel from kernel plus

kernel-plus is installed in parallel with the normal kernel and both should be on the grub menu as options at boot time. If you want to switch away from it then disable the centosplus yum repo again then boot the latest non-plus kernel and once you are back up then you can yum remove the plus entries.
