What is the procedure for patching/updating system
version of OpenSSH on an FBSD 5.2.1 box?

I used the excellent Rootkit Hunter security
assessment tool:


and it found that I'm running OpenSSH 3.6.1p1, which
has at least one vulnerability.

I only know how to install/upgrade from ports. OpenSSH
is part of the ports collection, but the build I'm
running was included with the OS. 

What's the right way to proceed here?
