Alerts if an EC2 instance was not launched from the latest Amazon Linux AMI

This alert checks for instances that were not launched from the latest Amazon Linux AMI. This alert matches the AWS instance_id against the list of Amazon Linux AMI IDs in the variable $AWS_LINUX_AMI in audit-aws-ec2-aws-linux-check/config.yaml. This list can be modified and updated by modifying the config.yaml file. If notified of a violation, it does not necessarily indicate that you have a problem with your EC2 instances.
