    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in FFmpeg, a multimedia
    player, server and encoder. These issues could lead to Denial-of-Service
    and, in some situation, the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2017-9608
    
        Yihan Lian of Qihoo 360 GearTeam discovered a NULL pointer access when
        parsing a crafted MOV file.
    
    CVE-2017-9993
    
        Thierry Foucu discovered that it was possible to leak information from
        files and symlinks ending in common multimedia extensions, using the
        HTTP Live Streaming.
    
    CVE-2017-11399
    
        Liu Bingchang of IIE discovered an integer overflow in the APE decoder
        that can be triggered by a crafted APE file.
    
    CVE-2017-11665
    
        JunDong Xie of Ant-financial Light-Year Security Lab discovered that
        an attacker able to craft a RTMP stream can crash FFmpeg.
    
    CVE-2017-11719
    
        Liu Bingchang of IIE discovered an out-of-bound access that can be
        triggered by a crafted DNxHD file. 
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 7:3.2.7-1~deb9u1.
