    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
    (CVE-2019-10206).
    
    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).
