The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
Multiple flaws were found in the way Augeas handled configuration
files when updating them. An application using Augeas to update
configuration files in a directory that is writable to by a different
user (for example, an application running as root that is updating
files in a directory owned by a non-root service user) could have been
tricked into overwriting arbitrary files or leaking information via a
symbolic link or mount point attack. (CVE-2012-0786 , CVE-2012-0787)
