Synopsis :

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

crafted RPC request could cause libtirpc to attempt to free a buffer
provided by an application using the library, even when the buffer was
not dynamically allocated. This could cause an application using
libtirpc, such as rpcbind, to crash. (CVE-2013-1950)
