The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
A denial of service flaw was found in the way libxml2 performed string
substitutions when entity values for entity references replacement was
enabled. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted XML file
that, when processed by an application linked against libxml2, would
lead to excessive CPU consumption.

Run 'yum update libxml2' to update your system.
