upstream references:

Note that in the openwall.com URL you provided
(http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2015/01/27/9 ) there is a
simple program (in section 4 - Case Studies) to test whether a given
machine's vulnerable.

I dunno what the EOL for C5 patches are, as I don't run it. But reading
http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/EOL it'd seem that there may be a patch
for it at some stage, despite upstream not referencing their 5th edition
in their notes.
