realpath advisory question

I have a question regarding whether or not I need to upgrade my system, and
if so, what's the best way to do it to minimize downtime.

If this should have gone to the security list, I apologize.

uname output:

bash-2.05b$ uname -a
FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE #1: Sat Aug  2
15:57:20 PDT 2003
root at  i386

Does anything in the uname suggest I'm OK, or do I need to upgrade?

I'm a bit nervous about doing a make world update, but only for downtime

Is there another command I can run to verify whether or not I'm OK?

Thanks in advance for your help, and if I left something out, please feel
free to let me know. I have my asbestos suit on :).
