Peter Pawlowski (foobar2000 developer) clarification:

"Not Our Bug:
While the buffer size calculation part may produce incorrect results on malformed files, foobar2000 itself will never write outside allocated memory, and will also correctly tell the ACM codec what buffer size it has allocated - see ACMSTREAMHEADER::cbDstLength.
This may lead to a buffer overrun only in case of a buggy codec present on the system that writes past the output buffer size as specified by the application.

Either way this will be worked-around with the next update (as a part of broken codec workarounds), thanks for posting this.
