The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
A flaw was found in the way MySQL processed HANDLER READ NEXT
statements after deleting a record. A remote, authenticated attacker
could use this flaw to provide such requests, causing mysqld to crash.
This issue only caused a temporary denial of service, as mysqld was
automatically restarted after the crash. (CVE-2012-2102)
