More information:

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the FFmpeg multimedia framework, which could result in denial of service or potentially the execution of arbitrary code if malformed Real, MV, RL2, ASF, Apple HLS, Phantom Cine, MXF, NSV, MOV or RTP H.264 files/streams are processed.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 7:3.2.8-1~deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ffmpeg packages.
