The function OGL!ScanOperation::Convert_24_sRGB was called with edx pointing to an invalid memory location: 0x8a94e1a0. Tracing back we can find that the heap address where edx came from was allocated with the following call stack:

3be70fe2 OGL!GpMalloc+0x00000014
3bd58669 OGL!CopyOnWriteBitmap::CopyOnWriteBitmap+0x00000049
3be0517e OGL!CopyOnWriteBitmap::Create+0x00000021
3be0514d OGL!GpBitmap::GpBitmap+0x00000030

The edx value was copied in from the stack at the following location OGL!GpMemoryBitmap::InitMemoryBitmap():

3bd4f6f0 8b45fc          mov     eax,dword ptr [ebp-4]
3bd4f6f3 6a06            push    6
3bd4f6f5 59              pop     ecx
3bd4f6f6 8bf3            mov     esi,ebx
=>3bd4f6f8 f3a5            rep movs dword ptr es:[edi],dword ptr [esi]

The stack location was set with the invalid value here in OGL!ValidateBitmapInfo():

3bda46ed 8b4d08          mov     ecx,dword ptr [ebp+8]
3bda46f0 895804          mov     dword ptr [eax+4],ebx
3bda46f3 895008          mov     dword ptr [eax+8],edx
3bda46f6 89480c          mov     dword ptr [eax+0Ch],ecx
=> 3bda46f9 897810          mov     dword ptr [eax+10h],edi

Edi is set earlier as the result of an imul instruction that is then added to a base heap pointer:

.text:3BDA46CB                 lea     edi, [ebx-1]
.text:3BDA46CE                 imul    edi, edx
.text:3BDA46D1                 add     edi, [ebp+arg_4] ; bad value here

With this PoC edi=0x0000666e and edx=0x00013350. The edx value is calculated earlier in the same function. If 0xf9ef540 is the base pointer (arg_4) we end up setting this value to be 0x666e*0x13350+0xf9ef540 or 0x8a94e1a0 as we saw in the initial bad memory access. The heap chunk referenced at 0xf9ef540 has an original allocation size of 15156 and we've set our pointer far out of bounds of this allocation range.

There is a distinct lack of overflow checks and bounds checking in the OGL!ValidateBitmapInfo function that may lead to memory corruption when doing bitmap conversion later on in the code. For example, if the 0x13350 value is able to grow to 0x27fd0 we can set the edi value to be 0xffffcb60 (0x666e * 0x27fd0 = 0xffffcb60) which leads to an out of bound write instead of an out of bound read later in the code.

Proof of Concept:
