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 files/streams are processed. For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 7:3.2.11-1~deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ffmpeg packages.
