That appears to be a lead riser wiped onto a brass caulking ferrrule into a cast iron 4" x 3" 1/4 bend. I would cut as much of the cast iron pipe out as you can get to, then transition to PVC or ABS with a proper transition band. Do not use an all rubber Fernco or a standard no hub band, as the outside diameter of the cast iron and the plastic pipe is slightly different. The transition band has a neoprene sleeve that accounts for this, and will hold the two pipes in proper alignment. Also, support the pipes on either side of the band, and the PVC every 4', plus directly under the 1/4 bend that turns up to the toilet.
