ECR images tags shouldn't be mutable.

Explanation

ECR images should be set to IMMUTABLE to prevent code injection through image mutation.

This can be done by setting image_tab_mutability to IMMUTABLE

Possible Impact

Image tags could be overwritten with compromised images

Suggested Resolution

Only use immutable images in ECR
