FreeBSD does not use RPM (Red Hat Package Manager), it
provides its own software management system (i, e., the
ports collection and, for your 6.2 system, the pkg_ tools).
However, your system seems rather old, so "today's methods"
probably won't work.

If you can, upgrade your server. FreeBSD 6 isn't supported
anymore. But it should be possible to fix the problem. Please
see the thread "BASH Shellshock and FreeBSD 4.X" for further
instructions:

Check which approach might work for you.
