* CentOS/RHEL distributions starting version 8 have adopted DNF instead of YUM for package management, which requires major changes to the GFI LanGuard scan engine for it to perform scanning and remediation operations properly. If you are using one of these OS distributions and facing issues with the scanning or remediation operations, you can submit a feature/enhancement request to the Product Management for GFI LanGuard to include improved support for these OS distributions.
