===========================================================

The crash happens in CStyleSheetArray::BuildListOfMatchedRules while attempting to read memory outside of the bounds of the object pointed by eax (possibly due to a type confusion issue, but I didn't investigate in detail). If that read is successful and attacker-controlled address is read into edi, this down the line leads to a write at the attacker controlled address in CStyleSheetArray::BuildListOfProbableRules. Thus it might be possible to turn the issue into code execution.
