OpenSSH v.7.4 in the pritunl-bastion container

Hi. We are in the process of rolling out Pritunl zero nodes, and will start implementing SSO shortly.
However, we are concerned that the OpenSSH version that’s running in pritunl/pritunl-bastion container is 7.4
This has an impact on compliance and security insurance.
If Pritunl team can upgrade the OpenSSH, it will be greatly appreciated and we can go ahead with SSO implementation.
Secondly, or is it possible that we can run bastion without using the auto-bastion feature?

Thank you

The image has been updated to Oracle Linux 8 with a newer OpenSSH version.

Thank you very much, Zach. Much appreciated for the prompt reply and solution. Cheers.
