Oracle Linux Update Release

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 68857


The remote Oracle Linux operating system is out-of-date.


The remote host is running a release of Oracle Linux that is not at the latest update release (or minor release). Since updating Oracle Linux to the latest update release provides a host with the most recent updates, this means that it has not been updated recently and is likely to be affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


Apply the latest update release.
