Upgrading to n-STABLE or RELENG_x

FreeBSD will occasionally release security advisories detailing the badness
surrounding a single package and will often include the following as the
1) Upgrade your vulnerable system to 4-STABLE, 5-STABLE, or 6-STABLE,
or to the RELENG_6_0, RELENG_5_4, RELENG_5_3, RELENG_4_11, or
RELENG_4_10 security branch dated after the correction date.
What does this mean? And how do I do it? The current output of "uname -a" on
my machine right now is:
FreeBSD <hostname> 5.3-RELEASE FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE #0: Wed Nov 30 16:39:45
EST 2005 <user>@<hostname>:/usr/src/sys/i386/compile/<hostname> i386
Does 5.3-RELEASE == 5-STABLE?
Why are security advisories not reported by way of portaudit?
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks be to God that gave me stubborness when I know I am right.
