    If you have an OpenVZ VPS somewhere and see an older kernel, reboot your VPS and then check the kernel version again. You might be surprised that it is suddenly newer.

    This.

    A large number of providers pause/suspend VM's rather than a full shutdown/reboot of them.

    If they use kernel care you will see it as old version but it actually patched with latest bug fixes just not shown publicly
