New instances should not see the contents of uninitialized (by them) disk sectors. That is the point of the recent discussion about FALLOC_FL_NO_HIDE_STALE. The kernel will not allow one virtual machine to see the contents of another's disk, or at least that is what I understand.
The AWS console has an option to reboot a machine, between "Terminate" and "Stop". You can also do it programmatically using EC2 commands, e.g. if the machine stops responding.
