The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
An array index error, leading to an out-of-bounds buffer read flaw,
was found in the way the net-snmp agent looked up entries in the
extension table. A remote attacker with read privileges to a
Management Information Base (MIB) subtree handled by the 'extend'
directive (in '/etc/snmp/snmpd.conf') could use this flaw to crash
snmpd via a crafted SNMP GET request. (CVE-2012-2141)
