Notes:

- Reliably reproduces with latest Adobe Flash Player Projector for Windows and Google Chrome for Windows.

- The out-of-bounds read appears to be caused by an overly large index value (stored in the "EAX" register at the time of the crash) relative to a dynamically allocated buffer pointed to by "ESI".

- The memory under "ESI" contains a section of the input file starting at offset 0x50dda0.

- Attached samples: signal_sigsegv_7ffff6d8a235_3103_51dea5ced16249520f1fa0a7a63d7b36 (crashing file), 51dea5ced16249520f1fa0a7a63d7b36 (original file). The total difference between the two files is 19 bytes.
