In this crash eax is pointing to an invalid memory region and is being dereferenced causing an access violation. There is a clear path to an out of bounds memory write shortly after the current crashing instruction. The value in eax came from edi + [ecx+4]. The value in [ecx+4] appears to a length with a single bit flipped, 0x00200122 instead of 0x00000122. The heap chunk allocated for this came from:

    address 1febce18 found in
    _DPH_HEAP_ROOT @ 71000
    in busy allocation (  DPH_HEAP_BLOCK:         UserAddr         UserSize -         VirtAddr         VirtSize)
