    How does the following apply: Re: yum-security plugin

    As far as I know, the issue of missing package information to determine security updates has been fixed.

    Perhaps the following will allow you to limit security patches for your current release version, provided yo have el5_latest enabled and ol5_UEK_latest enabled in your repo configuraiton.

    # yum --security check-update | grep 'el5_6\|el5uek'

    However, why would you want to stay on 5.6 and not update to 5.8?
