Upstream reported issue and investigation regarding /var/log/wtmp parsing: 
Comment 2 Greg Blomquist 2015-11-05 11:38:59 EST

this is using the image scanning code used by VM smart state to parse the files.  Ladas said that he collects the files via SSH but hands off all the parsing to the C code for parsing.

Can you take a look at this?

Ping Ladas if you need more details.
Comment 3 Rich Oliveri 2015-11-05 13:01:21 EST
I don't have time to look at this now. The fact that he's using the same code to parse the files may not be relevant - given this has only been reported for host scanning.

    Fix SSA user logon on RHEL7
    Smart state analysis failed to read user logon time after
    certain amount of logged actions. Reading /var/log/wtmp file
    in binary mode fixes it.
