The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
A flaw was found in the way the FreeType font rendering engine
processed certain Glyph Bitmap Distribution Format (BDF) fonts. If a
user loaded a specially crafted font file with an application linked
against FreeType, it could cause the application to crash or,
possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running the application. (CVE-2012-5669)
