1. The ProcessServerResponse() function is called with a variable pointer that
was declared in another context and that shouldn't exist there.
2. Why does the code zero-terminate the read data? It seems to indicate that
you have code that assumes zero could be the end of the received data.
3. Passing in binary data using a single 'char *' to a function seems odd,
how's that function supposed to know what size the data is?

If you would tell us more details on HOW the corruption looks, we might be
able to offer even more clues.
