Overview

github.com/hashicorp/packer/builder/amazon/common is a tool for creating identical machine images for multiple platforms from a single source configuration.

Affected versions of the package are vulnerable to Insecure Defaults. It does not require the owners flag when describing images, which makes it easier for remote attackers to trigger the loading of an undesired AMI by setting similar image properties.

You can read more about Insecure Defaults on our blog.
