The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
A NULL pointer dereference flaw was discovered in the way Openswan's
IKE daemon processed IKEv2 payloads. A remote attacker could send
specially crafted IKEv2 payloads that, when processed, would lead to a
denial of service (daemon crash), possibly causing existing VPN
connections to be dropped. (CVE-2013-6466)
