The remote Oracle Linux host is missing a security update.
From Red Hat Security Advisory 2007:0675 :
An updated perl-Net-DNS package that corrects a security issue is now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
Net::DNS is a collection of Perl modules that act as a Domain Name
System (DNS) resolver.
A flaw was found in the way Net::DNS generated the ID field in a DNS
query. This predictable ID field could be used by a remote attacker to
return invalid DNS data. (CVE-2007-3377)
Users of Net::DNS should upgrade to this updated package, which
contains backported patches to correct this issue.
