Let $g$ be a $G$-invariant Einstein metric on a compact homogeneous space $M = G/K$. We use a formula for the Lichnerowicz Laplacian of $g$ at $G$-invariant $TT$-tensors to study the stability type of $g$ as a critical point of the scalar curvature function. The case when $g$ is naturally reductive is studied in special detail.
