Overview

ansible is a simple IT automation system.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Information Exposure. When a user executes ansible-vault edit, another user on the same computer can read the old and new secret, as it is created in a temporary file with mkstemp and the returned file descriptor is closed and the method write_data is called to write the existing secret in the file. This method will delete the file before recreating it insecurely.

Remediation

There is no fixed version for ansible.
