The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
When an ISAKMP message with an invalid KEY_LENGTH attribute is
received, the error handling function crashes on a NULL pointer
dereference. Openswan automatically restarts the pluto IKE daemon but
all ISAKMP state is lost. This vulnerability does NOT allow an
attacker access to the system. This can be used to launch a denial of
service attack by sending repeated IKE packets with the invalid key

Run 'yum upgrade openswan' to upgrade your system.
