The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
Multiple numeric conversion errors, leading to a buffer overflow, were
found in the way OpenSSL parsed ASN.1 (Abstract Syntax Notation One)
data from BIO (OpenSSL's I/O abstraction) inputs. Specially crafted
DER (Distinguished Encoding Rules) encoded data read from a file or
other BIO input could cause an application using the OpenSSL library
to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-2110)
