Is there anyway to get patch for my FreeBSD 6.2 . If I enable internet
connection is it possible.
I cannot upgrade the version right now.
Can you please share the method of upgrading the package.

FreeBSD does not use RPM (Red Hat Package Manager), it
provides its own software management system (i, e., the
ports collection and, for your 6.2 system, the pkg_ tools).
However, your system seems rather old, so "today's methods"
probably won't work.

If you can, upgrade your server. FreeBSD 6 isn't supported
anymore. But it should be possible to fix the problem. Please
see the thread "BASH Shellshock and FreeBSD 4.X" for further
Check which approach might work for you.
