More information:

Several vulnerabilities have been found in Ansible, a configuration management, deployment and task execution system, which could result in information disclosure or argument injection. In addition a race condition in become_user was fixed.

For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in version 2.7.7+dfsg-1+deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ansible packages.
