My website allows users to upload video files so they can publish them, and I use ffmpeg to convert the files and move atom to the beginning, can someone upload a malicious file as if it is a video file and ffmpeg can execute that malicious file?
If yes, any one knows how to prevent that from happening? Can the Ffprobe help with that?
