Medium Nessus Plugin ID 100644
SynopsisThe remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

status file in the proc filesystem. A local user with privileges to execute
commands via sudo could use this flaw to escalate their privileges to root.
SolutionRun 'yum update sudo' to update your system.
