No -- the iso images are produced at release time and not altered
after that.  However, binary patches are being produced by Colin
Percival's FreeBSD-update service -- see his site at -- which will apply to
systems installed from the release media.

The fixes will certainly be in the next release, which I think is
going to be 4.10, but that's some time in the future.
