Not at present AFAIK. Red Hat are currently working on backporting a 
fix. You can track progress here:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=634457
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-40265

Given CentOS tracks what Red Hat releases, there's not much CentOS can 
do until Red Hat release a fix and Red Hat are unlikely to rush a fix 
out of the door before it's been thoroughly tested.
