The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the decode_icmp_msg()
function in the ICMP-MIB implementation processed Internet Control
Message Protocol (ICMP) message statistics reported in the
/proc/net/snmp file. A remote attacker could send a message for each
ICMP message type, which could potentially cause the snmpd service to
crash when processing the /proc/net/snmp file. (CVE-2014-2284)
