The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
From Red Hat Security Advisory 2017:1759 :
An update for freeradius is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security
impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each
vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.
FreeRADIUS is a high-performance and highly configurable free Remote
Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS) server, designed to allow
centralized authentication and authorization for a network.
Security Fix(es) :
* An out-of-bounds write flaw was found in the way FreeRADIUS server
handled certain attributes in request packets. A remote attacker could
use this flaw to crash the FreeRADIUS server or to execute arbitrary
code in the context of the FreeRADIUS server process by sending a
specially crafted request packet. (CVE-2017-10979)
* An out-of-bounds read and write flaw was found in the way FreeRADIUS
server handled RADIUS packets. A remote attacker could use this flaw
to crash the FreeRADIUS server by sending a specially crafted RADIUS
* Multiple memory leak flaws were found in the way FreeRADIUS server
handled decoding of DHCP packets. A remote attacker could use these
flaws to cause the FreeRADIUS server to consume an increasing amount
of memory resources over time, possibly leading to a crash due to
memory exhaustion, by sending specially crafted DHCP packets.
* Multiple out-of-bounds read flaws were found in the way FreeRADIUS
server handled decoding of DHCP packets. A remote attacker could use
these flaws to crash the FreeRADIUS server by sending a specially
crafted DHCP request. (CVE-2017-10982, CVE-2017-10983)
Red Hat would like to thank the FreeRADIUS project for reporting these
issues. Upstream acknowledges Guido Vranken as the original reporter
of these issues.
