This could happen if an installed update or patch did not properly update the rpm package database when installed.

#openssl version is showing you the currently installed version.

Alternative check:
[root@localhost]# which openssl
/bin/openssl
[root@localhost]# /bin/openssl
OpenSSL> version
OpenSSL 1.0.1g 7 Apr 2014

This could be pkg bug, but as per the output it seems like you have OpenSSL 1.0.1g installed.

Not sure but openssl release with RHEL6 has lots of bugs.. :-\

RHEL or CentOS never shipped openssl-1.0.0

Patched version looks like this:
$ rpm -q openssl
openssl-1.0.1e-16.el6_5.7.x86_64
$ openssl version
OpenSSL 1.0.1e-fips 11 Feb 2013

it has been some time since you read it. Will you grade or stay asleep?

Simple "yum upgrade openssl" should cure version mismatch
