The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
An integer overflow flaw was found in the implementation of the printf
functions family. This could allow an attacker to bypass
FORTIFY_SOURCE protections and execute arbitrary code using a format
string flaw in an application, even though these protections are
expected to limit the impact of such flaws to an application abort.
