The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was
found in Ghostscript's International Color Consortium Format library
(icclib). An attacker could create a specially-crafted PostScript or
PDF file with embedded images that would cause Ghostscript to crash
or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running Ghostscript. (CVE-2012-4405)
