How to fix?

Upgrade ansible to version 2.8.15, 2.9.13 or higher.

Overview

ansible is a simple IT automation system.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Improper Verification of Cryptographic Signature. A flaw was found in the Ansible Engine when installing packages using the dnf module. GPG signatures are ignored during installation even when disable_gpg_check is set to False, which is the default behaviour. This flaw leads to malicious packages being installed on the system and arbitrary code executed via package installation scripts. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to integrity and system availability.
