   Security issues fixed:

   - CVE-2018-10875: ansible.cfg is read from the current working directory
     which can be altered to make it point to a plugin or a module path under
     the control of an attacker, thus allowing the attacker to execute
     arbitrary code. (bsc#1099808)
   - CVE-2018-10874: It was found that inventory variables are loaded from
     current working directory when running ad-hoc command which are under
     attacker's control, allowing to run arbitrary code as a result.
   - CVE-2018-10855: Ansible did not honor the no_log task flag for failed
     tasks. When the no_log flag has been used to protect sensitive data
     passed to a task from being logged, and that task does not run
     successfully, Ansible will expose sensitive data in log files and on the
     terminal of the user running Ansible. (bsc#1097775)
