New Kernel Vulnerability Patched
Without a Reboot

02 virtuozzo

Virtuozzo's Team discovered a new security vulnerability in the Linux kernel, CVE-2020-14305. This vulnerability corrupts the memory in kernels from v3.5 to v4.10 and affects various Linux distributions. If you are using KernelCare, you are protected against it.

 

KernelCare and CentOS® 6 Extended Lifecycle Support Limited-time offer

It can be challenging to migrate to the newest version of CentOS® when an older version reaches its end-of-life. At the same time, ongoing support is necessary..

Now you can get that necessary support for CentOS6. CentOS® 6 Extended Lifecycle Support (ELS) from CloudLinux provides support for CentOS® 6 after it reaches its end-of-life on November 30. This ELS support extends for three years beyond that date.
