Synopsis :

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

Description :

A flaw was found in the way libtasn1 decoded DER data. An attacker
could create carefully-crafted DER encoded input (such as an X.509
certificate) that, when parsed by an application that uses libtasn1
(such as applications using GnuTLS), could cause the application to
crash. (CVE-2012-1569)
