ec2-hibinit-agent update

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Available with Ubuntu Pro)


A security improvement was added to EC2 hibagent.

Software Description:
- ec2-hibinit-agent: Amazon EC2 hibernation agent


USN-6519-1 added IMDSv2 support to EC2 hibagent. This update provides
the corresponding update for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Original advisory details:

 The EC2 hibagent package has been updated to add IMDSv2 support, as IMDSv1
 uses an insecure protocol and is no longer recommended.

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Available with Ubuntu Pro):
  ec2-hibinit-agent               1.0.0-0ubuntu4~16.04.4+esm1

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
