The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
The Linux kernel before 3.2.2 does not properly restrict SG_IO ioctl
calls, which allows local users to bypass intended restrictions on
disk read and write operations by sending a SCSI command to (1) a
partition block device or (2) an LVM volume.

Run 'yum update kernel' to update your system. You will need to reboot
your system in order for the new kernel to be running.
