To be fair you have to pay Red Hat *extra* if you want patches for the
non-current RHEL release(s) and don't have premium support:


# Red Hat provides Extended Update Support(EUS) channels for
# administrators who want to stay with one minor version of
# the Base OS rather than upgrade to new versions with new
# packages and new features on production systems. Beginning
# with the 2013 Pricing and Packaging, the Red Hat Enterprise
# Linux EUS subscription is included as part of Premium Support,
# or may be purchased as an add-on subscription with Standard Support.
