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.
Version eFa 4.0.2 now available!
