The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
It was discovered that the D-Bus library honored environment settings
even when running with elevated privileges. A local attacker could
possibly use this flaw to escalate their privileges, by setting
specific environment variables before running a setuid or setgid
application linked against the D-Bus library (libdbus).
