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.
See also :
Run 'yum update openssl' to upgrade your system. For the update to
take effect, all services linked to the OpenSSL library must be
restarted, or the system rebooted.
Risk factor :
High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
Family: Amazon Linux Local Security Checks
