Day 14 in the #vDM30in30 Image taken from Implementing Spacewalk into Company Infrastructure I’ve done a bunch of work with customers around patch management and packaging errata for CentOS, so I thought I’d talk about it a bit. What is errata? In the context of packaging, errata is basically listings from the package manager upstreams with updates for when CVE’s and vulnerabilities are found. So for official RHEL systems, this is available by default from the upstream, and the whole managed with Red Hat’s Satellite tool, which gets the information directly from RedHat’s infrastructure with your official paid login.
