Installing openSSH updates on RH 7.2

Hi there,

After hearing about the security problems with openSSH I'm trying to install the new version. I have SSH access to a Redhat 7.2 machine.

I downloaded 4 rpms from the redhat site - openssh, openssh-askpass, openssh-clients and openssh-server. When I try rpm -U packagename i get

error: failed dependencies:
openssh = 3.1p1-6 is needed by openssh-clients-3.1p1-6
openssh = 3.1p1-6 is needed by openssh-server-3.1p1-6

When it try to install the client or server packages I get :

openssh = 3.1p1-14 is needed by openssh-server-3.1p1-14

or client for the client package. I really don't know what to do here and I'm worried about the security of the server! Could it be the fact that I am logged in via SSH that it can't update it.

Any help would be very much appreciated.
