Now that most mirrors are dropping CentOS-4, if remaining users still need to access yum repos then edit /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo, comment out [b]mirrorlist[/b] directives, and in each enabled section add [b]baseurl=http://vault.centos.org/4.9/os/$basearch[/b], [b]baseurl=http://vault.centos.org/4.9/updates/$basearch[/b], etc.

There will be no more updates, security or otherwise. Everyone still using CentOS-4 should be planning a migration to a supported release. If it is [b][i]absolutely[/i][/b] necessary to continue to run the obsolete release, then consider installing a supported released and running it via [url=http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos#head-fb1ff7e71fb5f2f511cda8c68cb6ba5f6e8decae]virtualization[/url], allowing virtual instances to be easily snapshotted and restored if compromised.
