The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
Multiple integer overflow flaws, leading to stack-based buffer
overflows, were found in glibc's functions for converting a string to
a numeric representation (strtod(), strtof(), and strtold()). If an
application used such a function on attacker controlled input, it
could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-3480)
