How to fix?

There is no fixed version for FFmpeg.


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. FFmpeg is vulnerable to denial of service (DoS) attacks. These attacks are possible because FFmpeg does not check for an EOF (End of File) in the rl2_read_header() function of libavformat/rl2.c. This leads to high CPU and memory consumption when a malicious RL2 file with a large frame_count field in the header but without sufficient backing data is input.
