Missing Centos 8 announcements

Post by kluch » 2020/05/31 06:11:32

Hi,
I wonder why there are no announcements on list for new patched versions for:
CESA-2020:0487 (sudo) - (equivalent of RHEL8's https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2020:0487)
CESA-2020:0902 (icu) - (eq. https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2020:0902)
CESA-2020:1372 (kernel) - (eq. https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2020:1372)
Packages of course are available but no announcements at all. Something changed?

The way that RH announce things changed for el8 and the scripts that produce the errata mails on the CentOS side broke because of this and no=one has had a chance to fix them yet.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.

Thanks for explanation, but I must also notice that because of lack of these announcements Tenable Nessus does not provide plugins for Centos 8. It was their official answer on my ticket. It means that you can have vulnerable CentOS 8 even if Nessus shows that it is OK.
