Alma Linux Update

CentOS has announced the end of life for their version 6 and 8 operating systems. This means CentOS will no longer provide security patches, vulnerabilities, or bug fixes for these operating systems. As a result, Alert Logic is helping customers update all Alert Logic appliances running on out-of-date operating systems.

Update your appliance to Alma Linux using the documentation below.

As we transition all customers to Alma Linux, Alert Logic will continue to maintain necessary security updates for virtual CentOS versions 6 and 8 through January 31, 2023, to ensure all customers remain secure.

How to update

The update process varies for each customer, depending on your subscription and service you are using:

  • MDR customers using an OVA image: See Alma Linux Update for MDR Customers using OVA for more details.
  • Cloud Defender or other legacy products customer using an OVA image: See Alma Linux Update for Legacy Customers using OVA for more details.
  • Alert Logic Managed Web Application Firewall (WAF) subscription: Alert Logic has already contacted you, or will contact you soon, to coordinate a time to update your appliance.
  • Threat Manager subscription: Alert Logic will contact you soon on the process and details for this transition.
