Subject: libfpx: heap-based buffer overflow in OLEStream::WriteVT_LPSTR (olestrm.cpp)

libfpx is a library for manipulating FlashPIX images.

I’m aware that the link to the upstream website does not work. I’m keeping it as well because in the future the upstream website could appear 
Libfpx is not actively developed, I contacted the imagemagick project if they were available to patch security issues, but they said the they 
are only accepting patches and push new releases.
This issue was found using the gm command line tool of graphicsmagick.

The complete ASan output of the issue:
