|Package||Type||Release||Fixed Version||Urgency||Origin||Debian Bugs|
[jessie] - facter <no-dsa> (Minor issue)
[squeeze] - facter <not-affected> (Uses version 2008-02-01 of the EC2 API which does not expose security credentials)
[wheezy] - facter <no-dsa> (Minor issue)
The assessment for Squeeze being unaffected is based on the fact that the code accesses http://169.254.169.254/2008-02-01/meta-data/ and that http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/ec2-instance-metadata.html mentions the iam/security-credentials/role key as being introduced in version 2012-01-12.
