Synopsis :

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description :

It was discovered that the 389 Directory Server did not properly
handle certain SASL-based authentication mechanisms. A user able to
authenticate to the directory using these SASL mechanisms could
connect as any other directory user, including the administrative
Directory Manager account. This could allow them to modify
configuration values, as well as read and write any data the directory
holds.
