The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
From Red Hat Security Advisory 2008:0042 :
Updated tomcat packages that fix security issues and bugs are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
Tomcat is a servlet container for Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages
A directory traversal vulnerability existed in the Apache Tomcat
webdav servlet. In some configurations it allowed remote authenticated
users to read files accessible to the local tomcat process.
The default security policy in the JULI logging component did not
restrict access permissions to files. This could be misused by
untrusted web applications to access and write arbitrary files in the
context of the tomcat process. (CVE-2007-5342)
Users of Tomcat should update to these errata packages, which contain
backported patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.
