Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerabilities

Post by shawniverson » 04 Jan 2018 23:35

In light of recently released information regarding Meltdown and Spectre, we recommend that you do the following to protect your system from this and future threats as long as CentOS 6 is supported. You should only do this if you are on version

Update to version and then do the following:

Code: Select all

sudo sed -i "/^exclude=/ s/^/#/" /etc/yum.conf
sudo yum update
Restart the system after running the updates.

You may opt to leave the exclude line commented to continue updating eFa going forward using yum.
