The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
From Red Hat Security Advisory 2007:0905 :
Updated kdebase packages that resolve several security flaws are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
The kdebase packages provide the core applications for KDE, the K
Desktop Environment. These core packages include Konqueror, the web
browser and file manager.
These updated packages address the following vulnerabilities :
Kees Huijgen found a flaw in the way KDM handled logins when autologin
and 'shutdown with password' were enabled. A local user would have
been able to login via KDM as any user without requiring a password.
Two Konqueror address spoofing flaws were discovered. A malicious
website could spoof the Konqueror address bar, tricking a victim into
believing the page was from a different site. (CVE-2007-3820,
Users of KDE should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues.
