Default kernel security issues

Hi,

after watching the security alerts for the centos kernel I've the
impression that altought they are fixed fastly there are more alerts
than for the vanilla one of the same version.

Question: Are those alerts mostly specifically centos related or do they
also affect the vanilla sources?

Yes and No. It is dependent on where you are getting the source
security updates from. Some times it can come down all the way from
kernel.org > rh >CentOS. Then at times the security problem never
effects kernel.org kernel. There can be issues into play that upstream
introduced into the kernel itself from patchwork that will never get
into or see light of day to the kernel.org kernel.

Thanks. I do see more clearly now.
