Hey Alfred,
Yes, I'm running RHEL 5.9 (Tikanga)
How will I know which is the custom version of openssh to re-install?
And do I have to download it from a website first and then upload it
to the server, or do I type in a command?

Check places like /usr/local or /opt, unless they installed the source packages, in which case they'll be under /root/rpmbuild. If it was a tarball install, then to rebuild is easy:
cd <dir>
./configure (check to see if there's any switches you need to set) make make install

When I enter the command:   yum install openssh      or       yum install
openssh-server
I get error messages either way saying :

" Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/usr/bin/yum", line 29, in ?
     yummain.user_main(sys.argv[1:], exit_code=True)
   File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 309, in user_main
     errcode = main(args)
   File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 161, in main

Oy, as they say, vey. Type yum clean all, then try again.

      mark
-----------

Did the yum clean all and got " Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security  Cleaning up Everything"
So I afterwards I tried the ' yum install openssh ' and got the same error messages, so I tried the yum install openssh-server and also got the same error messages.

Constance  :-(


Let's see what else has been changed on those packages.  Try:

rpm -V openssh-server
rpm -V openssh-clients

And while we are at it:

rpm -V yum
