    Oracle Linux 7 - like other Enterprise Linux distros - tends to keep major versions of components stable. Security and bugfixes are backported from more modern versions of utilities. Just because the version number from the upstream project site is "higher" does NOT mean that the version that ships with Enterprise Linux is vulnerable, as long as you have updated to the latest version available from the distribution vendor.

    The latest version that I see is openssh-7.4p1-22.0.1.el7_9.x86_64.rpm

    It is available on in the Oracle Linux 7 "latest" channel.

    Read the "changelog" in that RPM to see the patches that have been applied to it.
