OK, thanks

ssh -V
Sun_SSH_1.5, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090819f

So, is there any reason to believe that `ALL' of the kex Algs offered
by our version (above) during handshake are considered `UNSAFE' and
are being rejected by a newer version of OpenSSH (6.7p1)?

The update manager on my version of OI (151_9) says there are no
updates available ... but that is probably because no updates are
being worked on...

Do I need to worry about my SunSSH having security problems?  Or
update it manually perhaps?
