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 for a limited period, to ensure all customers remain secure. This support is valid until the following dates depending on the appliance type:

  • Virtual Log Manager to June 30, 2023
