The version of OpenSSH in the ports tree is not plain 2.2.0, but 2.2.0
'port revision' 2. The 'port revision' was bumped twice to indicate
important security fixes. The 'some vulnerability' you are referring to
is probably the Bleichenbacher attack, which affected nearly all SSH
servers at the time; a fix was prompty added to the FreeBSD port.
