6.2, 6.3, 6.4 are not centos 'versions', the version is CentOS 6.. 6.2 
etc are just snapshots of the state of it at that point in time with no 
further patches.

yes, you probably can just install openssl updates, yum update 
openssl...  but such a mix of older packages with newer isn;t 100% 
tested (there's far too many possible combinations to test).
