The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
From Red Hat Security Advisory 2015:1668 :
Updated httpd packages that fix one security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Red Hat Product Security 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.
The httpd packages provide the Apache HTTP Server, a powerful,
efficient, and extensible web server.
Multiple flaws were found in the way httpd parsed HTTP requests and
responses using chunked transfer encoding. A remote attacker could use
these flaws to create a specially crafted request, which httpd would
decode differently from an HTTP proxy software in front of it,
possibly leading to HTTP request smuggling attacks. (CVE-2015-3183)
All httpd users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After
installing the updated packages, the httpd service will be restarted
