The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
JasPer is an implementation of Part 1 of the JPEG 2000 image
Two heap-based buffer overflow flaws were found in the way JasPer
decoded JPEG 2000 compressed image files. An attacker could create a
malicious JPEG 2000 compressed image file that, when opened, would
cause applications that use JasPer (such as Nautilus) to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code.
