It is two "minor releases" further. If /etc/redhat-release tells you,
that you still have CentOS 3.3, then you haven't updated your system for
close to 6 months - so a "fully patched" 3.3 cannot be "fully patched" -
as it will become a 3.5 system just by running "yum update".

Besides the security updates RedHat sometimes also pushes functioniality
upgrades with the minor releases.
