Security Patches

Post by Gary » 2015/05/28 23:57:39

Hi,

Is there a web page that lists available security patches for CentOS 7? I just want to check if I need to update my server.

Many thanks

You can subscribe to the CentOS-Announce mailing list and be notified that way. Once subscribed you can edit your prefernces so that you receive only mails about your preferred version nad architecture. Otherwise you can see the upstream errata web pages too.
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!
