CentOS 6.5 is from 2013 and riddled with security bugs. If you must use CentOS 6 at all then use 6.10 which is the current version with patches to secure against all the bugs discovered in the last 5 years since 6.5!

Also, you should be aware that CentOS 6 itself goes End Of Life in roughly 18 months time at which point there will be no more security patches at all. You might want to investigate using CentOS 7 instead which has support until 2024.
