The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
A flaw was found in the way BIND handled resource records with a large
RDATA value. A malicious owner of a DNS domain could use this flaw to
create specially-crafted DNS resource records, that would cause a
recursive resolver or secondary server to exit unexpectedly with an
assertion failure. (CVE-2012-4244)
