The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
A use-after-free flaw was found in the way Openswan's pluto IKE daemon
used cryptographic helpers. A remote, authenticated attacker could
send a specially crafted IKE packet that would crash the pluto daemon.
This issue only affected SMP (symmetric multiprocessing) systems that
have the cryptographic helpers enabled.
