The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
From Red Hat Security Advisory 2007:0244 :
Updated busybox packages that fix a security issue are now available.
This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.
Busybox is a single binary which includes versions of a large number
of system commands, including a shell. This package can be useful for
recovering from certain types of system failures.
BusyBox did not use a salt when generating passwords. This made it
easier for local users to guess passwords from a stolen password file.
All users of busybox are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain a patch to resolve this issue.
