    Several vulnerabilities have been found in Ansible, a configuration
    management, deployment, and task execution system:
    
    CVE-2018-10855 / CVE-2018-16876
    
        The no_log task flag wasn't honored, resulting in an information leak.
    
    CVE-2018-10875
    
        ansible.cfg was read from the current working directory.
    
    CVE-2018-16837
    
        The user module leaked parameters passed to ssh-keygen to the process
        environment.
    
    CVE-2019-3828
    
        The fetch module was susceptible to path traversal.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.2.1.0-2+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ansible packages.
