The old fashioned Red Hat way of changing what things are started at
starup is chkconfig.

  $ /sbin/chkconfig --list | grep yum
  yum-updatesd    0:off   1:off   2:off   3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

Suggested command (untested):
  # /sbin/chkconfig yum-updatesd off

That only affects future boots.  To affect the running system:
  # /sbin/service yum-updatesd stop
