The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
Ruby 1.8.7 before patchlevel 371, 1.9.3 before patchlevel 286, and 2.0
before revision r37068 allows context-dependent attackers to bypass
safe-level restrictions and modify untainted strings via the
name_err_mesg_to_str API function, which marks the string as tainted,
a different vulnerability than CVE-2011-1005 .
