The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
A flaw was found in the way sudo handled time stamp files. An attacker
able to run code as a local user and with the ability to control the
system clock could possibly gain additional privileges by running
commands that the victim user was allowed to run via sudo, without
knowing the victim's password. (CVE-2013-1775)
It was found that sudo did not properly validate the controlling
terminal device when the tty_tickets option was enabled in the
/etc/sudoers file. An attacker able to run code as a local user could
possibly gain additional privileges by running commands that the
victim user was allowed to run via sudo, without knowing the victim's
password. (CVE-2013-2776 , CVE-2013-2777)
