The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


Several vulnerabilities have been fixed by upgrading FFmpeg, a widely used multimedia framework, from 3.2.14 to 3.2.15.


rawenc: Only accept the appropriate stream type for raw muxers.


Heap-based buffer overflow in vqa_decode_chunk.


Use-after-free via a crafted EXTINF duration in an m3u8 file.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 7:3.2.15-0+deb9u1.

Several other bugs are also fixed in 3.2.15, a full list of changes is available at 1a8086489c004d83:/Changelog

We recommend that you upgrade your ffmpeg packages.
