What you normally need to do is look at the relevant Centos/RHEL
security errata website and look to see that the CVE's you are wanting
are covered (or looking at the src.rpm and see that.)

Or you can just do an rpm -e of the openssh rpms and rebuild the
openssh rpms from openssh.. though it may add/remove functionality
that your user expected from the old ssh.
