Not sure if by reading Zagam's post you've answered your own question or not, but hopefully to help you clarify:

Can someone confirms if I'm right or wrong? 'Cause a lot of ppl are saying different thing about Pandemic change and I'm pretty much confused right now.
You are/were wrong. Your statement implies that any DoT applied will STAY permanently buffed at whatever SP/Haste you first applied it at, so long as you keep refreshing it.
Zagam's analysis is correct. All DoTs will now correctly update, at the time of application, with a snapshot of your stats at that time.
E.g. Corruption on target with NO buffs, has 10 secs left.
Light of Cosmos procs.
You reapply Corruption(Light of Cosmos buff).
Corruption(Light of Cosmos buff) on target, has 24 seconds left.
That will last until it falls off, or until you overwrite it with another Corruption.
Basically, Pandemic was always supposed to work this way, but due to some mistakes it wasn't doing it properly. Thanks to 5.1, now it will.
Edit: i just realzied my corruption numbers are wrong since it has a max duration of 21 secs, sorry
. I'm bad at examples /shame.
