    Updated ant packages fix security vulnerability:
    
    Apache Ant uses the default temporary directory identified by the Java
    system property java.io.tmpdir for several tasks and may thus leak
    sensitive information. The fixcrlf and replaceregexp tasks also copy
    files from the temporary directory back into the build tree allowing
    an attacker to inject modified source files into the build process
    (CVE-2020-1945).
    
    The ant package has been updated to version 1.10.8 to fix this issue and
    other bugs.
