The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
From Red Hat Security Advisory 2011:0154 :
Updated hplip packages that fix one security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6.
The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from
the CVE link in the References section.
Hewlett-Packard Linux Imaging and Printing (HPLIP) provides drivers
for Hewlett-Packard printers and multifunction peripherals, and tools
for installing, using, and configuring them.
A flaw was found in the way certain HPLIP tools discovered devices
using the SNMP protocol. If a user ran certain HPLIP tools that search
for supported devices using SNMP, and a malicious user is able to send
specially-crafted SNMP responses, it could cause those HPLIP tools to
crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running them. (CVE-2010-4267)
Red Hat would like to thank Sebastian Krahmer of the SuSE Security
Team for reporting this issue.
Users of hplip should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
a backported patch to correct this issue.
