The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
From Red Hat Security Advisory 2008:0238 :
Updated kdegraphics packages that fix a security issue are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.
This update has been rated as having important security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
The kdegraphics packages contain applications for the K Desktop
Environment, including kpdf, a PDF file viewer.
Kees Cook discovered a flaw in the way kpdf displayed malformed fonts
embedded in PDF files. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file
that would cause kpdf to crash, or, potentially, execute arbitrary
code when opened. (CVE-2008-1693)
All kdegraphics users are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain backported patches to resolve this issue.
