How to fix?

Upgrade FFmpeg to version 2.8.3 or higher.


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

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Out-of-Bounds. FFMpeg is vulnerable to denial of service (DoS) attacks. These attacks are possible through the ff_hevc_decode_nal_sps function which allows remote attackers to cause out-of-bounds access through a .bit file.
