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 Ansible Engine 2.6 for RHEL 7 Server - 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.

The following packages have been upgraded to a newer upstream version:
ansible (2.6.1)

Security fix(es):

* 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.

This issue was discovered by Brian Coca (Red Hat), and Michael Scherer
(OSAS).

Bug Fix(es):

* Fix junos_config confirm commit timeout issue
(https://github.com/ansible/ansible/pull/41527)

* file module - The touch subcommand had its diff output broken during the
2.6.x development cycle. The patch to fix that broke check mode. This is
now fixed (https://github.com/ansible/ansible/issues/42111)

* inventory manager - This fixes required options being populated before
the inventory config file is read, so the required options may be set in
the config file.

* nsupdate - allow hmac-sha384
https://github.com/ansible/ansible/pull/42209

* win_domain - fixes typo in one of the AD cmdlets
https://github.com/ansible/ansible/issues/41536

* win_group_membership - uses the internal Ansible SID conversion logic and
uses that when comparing group membership instead of the name
https://github.com/ansible/ansible/issues/40649
