WRONG!  I will not make that mistake again!

I DO NOT recommend automated updates at all

I wouldn't do automatic updates either, but I do update
often and am not aware of any recent new Centos vulnerabilities.
Do you have any idea what happened?

I have no idea what happened other than that after the udatres, 4 updated servers got hacked and rootkits were installed.  Different rootkits on each one with different consequences.
