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.
