The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way libpng
processed tEXt chunks in PNG image files. An attacker could create a
specially crafted PNG image file that, when opened, could cause an
application using libpng to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running the application.
