There are three things you can count on: death, taxes, and new CVEs. The inevitable has happened for CentOS 8 users, and it didn’t take long. Something spectacularly failed just two weeks after the announced end of life, putting CentOS 8 users at the risk of a severe attack — and with no help from CentOS.
