The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
Two integer overflow flaws, leading to heap-based buffer overflows,
were found in the way libtiff attempted to allocate space for a tile
in a TIFF image file. An attacker could use these flaws to create a
specially crafted TIFF file that, when opened, would cause an
application linked against libtiff to crash or, possibly, execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-1173)
