The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
Due to a problem with the configuration of kernels 3.10.34-37 and
3.10.34-38 and their interaction with the authentication modules
stack, the sshd daemon that is part of the openssh package will no
longer allow remote logins following a restart of the sshd service.
See also :
Run 'yum update openssh kernel' to update the system. A reboot will be
necessary for the new kernel on the instance.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.0
