The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
Due to the way the pam_ssh_agent_auth PAM module was built, the
glibc's error() function was called rather than the intended error()
function in pam_ssh_agent_auth to report errors. As these two
functions expect different arguments, it was possible for an attacker
to cause an application using pam_ssh_agent_auth to crash, disclose
portions of its memory or, potentially, execute arbitrary code.
