The remote host is missing an update announced via the referenced Security Advisory.
socat 220.127.116.11 before 18.104.22.168 and 2.0.0-b1 before 2.0.0-b6, when used for a listen type address and the fork option is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (file descriptor consumption) via multiple request that are refused based on the (1) sourceport, (2) lowport, (3) range, or (4) tcpwrap restrictions.
Run yum update socat to update your system.
