And also https://ffmpeg.org/about.html and https://ffmpeg.org/developer.html 
(and the code contributors in the git repo's). Another answer to "Who?" is 
"A lot of people."

Well, maybe a tiny bit-
"Security is a high priority and code review is always done with security in 
mind. Though due to the very large amounts of code touching untrusted data 
security issues are unavoidable and thus we provide as quick as possible 
updates to our last stable releases when new security issues are found." (on 
the About page)

See https://ffmpeg.org/security.html

Generally, the original questions don't make sense without context, which we 
don't have.
