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 NULL Pointer Dereference. FFmpeg is vulnerable to denial of service (DoS) attacks. A malicious user can pass a malicious audio file to the swri_audio_convert method in the libswresample/audioconvert.c file, causing a null pointer dereference that can crash the application.
