What OS are you running?  RHEL6?

If so, then you actually do have the patched version EQUIVALENT to 1.0.1g,
so my local Linux guru tells me.

On RHEL6, I get:
% openssl version
OpenSSL 1.0.1e-fips 11 Feb 2013

BUT, I also get:
~% rpm -q openssl

RedHat, he tells me, does not distribute the new version but actually weng back 
and applied the relevant patches TO THEIR DISTRIBUTED VERSION.  Note the -16.
That's the indicator.

It seems that RedHat thinks they know better than we.
