Description Marcus Meissner 2021-05-27 09:57:43 UTC
snmp_facts module in Ansible leaks user authentication such as authKey and privKey. This could lead in disclosing those credentials for every user which has access to the output of playbook execution.

Comment 1 Salvatore Bonaccorso 2021-06-01 19:55:44 UTC
Please note that this CVE seems to be very confusing.

CVE-2020-20178 refers to a OpenLDAP issue in the description, but links to an ansible bug in the Red Hat bugzilla. This same on the other hand is CVE-2021-20178.

Note so the difference only in the year part. I guess something went wrong on the submission here. 

I tried to contact MITRE on 25 may on this issue.
Comment 2 Marcus Meissner 2021-06-02 08:15:10 UTC
I think this typo came from Redhat... they typoed the 2020 CVE apparently. 

2020 - openldap2
2021 - ansible
