    =====================================================================
    
    1. Summary:
    
    An update for ansible is now available for Red Hat OpenStack Platform 10.0
    (Newton).
    
    Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
    of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
    gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
    the CVE link(s) in the References section.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat OpenStack Platform 10.0 - noarch
    
    3. Description:
    
    Ansible is a simple model-driven configuration management, multi-node
    deployment, and remote-task execution system. Ansible works over SSH and
    does not require any software or daemons to be installed on remote nodes.
    Extension modules can be written in any language and are transferred to
    managed machines automatically.
    
    Security Fix(es):
    
    * ansible: Failed tasks do not honour no_log option allowing for secrets to
    be disclosed in logs (CVE-2018-10855)
    
    * ansible: Inventory variables are loaded from current working directory
    when running ad-hoc command that can lead to code execution
    (CVE-2018-10874)
    
    * ansible: ansible.cfg is being read from current working directory
    allowing possible code execution (CVE-2018-10875)
    
    For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS
    score, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in
    the References section.
