substitute the other CVE numbers for the rest, also:


(and so on)

So, Red Hat says CVE-2016-0701 does not impact any releases (no
updates), and if you look at the CVE-2015-3197, it lists all the
applicable updates.

If you check all the CVE's in question, you can find out all your answers.

CentOS has a CentOS-announce mailing list where you can see our released


For example, CVE-2015-3197 lists 'RHSA-2016:0301' on '2016-03-01', so to
see if CentOS released an update .. click on the March 2016 link and
then you will see this:


And on that page, you can find 2016:0301 for CentOS-6 .. it leads to
this link:


So, if you have openssl-1.0.1e-42.el6_7.4 or later, it has the changes
rolled in for that CVE, etc.
