The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
A flaw was found in the way libtirpc decoded RPC requests. A specially
crafted RPC request could cause libtirpc to attempt to free a buffer
provided by an application using the library, even when the buffer was
not dynamically allocated. This could cause an application using
libtirpc, such as rpcbind, to crash. (CVE-2013-1950)

Run 'yum update libtirpc' to update your system.
