How to fix?

There is no fixed version for FFmpeg.

Overview

FFmpeg is a FFmpeg static library ruby binding that is compiled for iOS and CocoaPods.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Resource Management Errors. The library lacks an end of fIle check, allowing a malicious user to pass a MOV file to the read_tfra() function in libavformat/mov.c to cause a loop that would consume large amounts of CPU and memory.
