Upgrading SSH? - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I am a fairly new RedHat Linux user. I believe that I have Redhat 7.2 installed. I was told that my SSH was out of date and that I should load the new version. Two questions, how can I tell what ver I am running and also is there a version assiciated with the kernal? How can I find the new SSH and how do I install it? Please advise. Thank you. Eddie...

    Thank you so much! Is there a good web page that will advise me to
    security updates for redhat?

    "ssh -V" or "rpm -q openssh-server" which is the package that contains the
    SSH server, and there's no kernel association.
     

    Don't. Update to the latest published RedHat 7.2 RPM, which is a security
    patched 3.1p1 version of OpenSSH. OpenSSH has since added this new
    "Privilege Separation" feature that has frankly been a serious portability
    problem. And so far, it really hasn't helped anyone's security. I'm really
    unhappy with the authors about it.

    Let someone else take the hits of running the latest greatest for Linux, and
    let the latest greatest get folded into a more recent RedHat release when
    you update your entire OS.
