The DxgkDdiEscape handler for 0x5000027 accepts a user provided pointer,
but does no checks on it before using it.

...
    DWORD* user_ptr = escape_5000027_data->user_ptr;
    v32 = user_ptr[2];
    v33 = user_ptr + 3;
    if ( v32 != -1 )
        v33 = (_DWORD *)v32;
    sub_91C24(miniport_context_, *user_ptr, user_ptr[1], v33, (__int64)&escape_data_);
...

The PoC I’ve provided causes a read on said pointer, but based on inspecting where this pointer
is passed it seems like there is at least 1 code path that can result in a write (I haven't
confirmed this though). 

(On Win 10 x64 with 372.54)

To reproduce, compile PoC as a x64 executable and run (requires WDK for D3DKMTEscape).
