Updated ansible packages fix security vulnerabilities

Publication date: 02 Nov 2019
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 7
CVE: CVE-2019-10206 , CVE-2019-14846 , CVE-2019-14858


Updated ansible package fixes security vulnerabilities:

ansible-playbook -k and ansible cli tools prompt passwords by expanding
them from templates as they could contain special characters. Passwords
should be wrapped to prevent templates trigger and exposing them

Ansible was logging at the DEBUG level which lead to a disclosure of
credentials if a plugin used a library that logged credentials at the
DEBUG level. This flaw does not affect Ansible modules, as those are
executed in a separate process (CVE-2019-14846).

When a module has an argument_spec with sub parameters marked as no_log,
passing an invalid parameter name to the module will cause the task to
fail before the no_log options in the sub parameters are processed. As a
result, data in the sub parameter fields will not be masked and will be
displayed if Ansible is run with increased verbosity and present in the
module invocation arguments for the task (CVE-2019-14858).
