The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
It was found that the hashing routine used by PHP arrays was
susceptible to predictable hash collisions. If an HTTP POST request to
a PHP application contained many parameters whose names map to the
same hash value, a large amount of CPU time would be consumed. This
flaw has been mitigated by adding a new configuration directive,
max_input_vars, that limits the maximum number of parameters processed
per request. By default, max_input_vars is set to 1000.
An integer overflow flaw was found in the PHP exif extension. On
32-bit systems, a specially crafted image file could cause the PHP
interpreter to crash or disclose portions of its memory when a PHP
script tries to extract Exchangeable image file format (Exif) metadata
from the image file. (CVE-2011-4566)
