Is there a Security Announcement for CentOS 8?

Post by subramanian » 2019/12/19 06:41:58

Hi guys,

I'm not able to find any security bulletins for CentOS 8.
Are there no security updates yet? Or is there a separate mailing list for CentOS 8?

Thanks in advance!

There are security updates but the process for generating the annoucement emails is broken and no-one has worked out how to fix it yet. If you haven't already done so then running yum update will get you the updates that have been released. CentOS 8.1 is still being built so there are updates for RHEL 8 that are not yet available for CentOS.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

Hi,
I will frequently use cent os bulletins to know whether security patches are available. Now I am using centos 8. May I know when will this mail list get fixed and released. So that I will know when and what are the security issue raised on my machine

I'd recommend writing to one of the CentOS mailing lists to ask this. No-one who has any idea about when this might be fixed ever reads these forums.
