SYNOPSIS  
#include <floatingpoint.h>  
  
char *econvert(double value, int ndigit, int *decpt, int  
*sign, char *buf);  
  
char *fconvert(double value, int ndigit, int *decpt, int  
*sign, char *buf);  
  
char *gconvert(double value, int ndigit, int trailing, char  
*buf);  
  
char *seconvert(single *value, int ndigit, int *decpt, int  
*sign, char *buf);  
  
char *sfconvert(single *value, int ndigit, int *decpt, int  
*sign, char *buf);  
  
char *sgconvert(single *value, int ndigit, int trailing,  
char *buf);  
  
char *qeconvert(quadruple *value, int ndigit, int *decpt,  
int *sign, char *buf);  
  
char *qfconvert(quadruple *value, int ndigit, int *decpt,  
int *sign, char *buf);  
  
char *qgconvert(quadruple *value, int ndigit, int trailing,  
char *buf);  
  
The econvert() function converts the value to a null-  
terminated string of ndigit ASCII digits in buf and returns  
a pointer to buf. buf should contain at least ndigit+1 char-  
acters. The position of the decimal point relative to the  
beginning of the string is stored indirectly through decpt.  
Thus buf == "314" and *decpt == 1 corresponds to the numeri-  
cal value 3.14, while buf == "314" and *decpt == -1  
corresponds to the numerical value .0314. If the sign of the  
result is negative, the word pointed to by sign is nonzero;  
otherwise it is zero. The least significant digit is  
rounded.  
  
SYNOPSIS  
#include <stdlib.h>  
  
char *ecvt(double value, int ndigit, int *restrict decpt,  
int *restrict sign);  
  
char *fcvt(double value, int ndigit, int *restrict decpt,  
int *restrict sign);  
  
char *gcvt(double value, int ndigit, char *buf);  
  
DESCRIPTION  
The ecvt(), fcvt() and gcvt() functions convert floating-  
point numbers to null-terminated strings.

The main problem exists in sun solaris libc. OpenSolaris is not affected.

for 512 will work fine, because we have used (double)0 to convert. When  
we use no zero value, then crash.  
  
ok. let`s set no zero value in jaja2.c

this vuln is very similar to CVE-2009-0689 but we don't have founded  
part of gdtoa license in Oracle license and bahavior for above examples  
are differs as in CVE-2009-0689.

We do not know why, but the OpenSolaris project, contains a security  
patch and the project is vulnerable SunOS.

Sun bug 5105920  
  
OpenSolaris has removed this issue without realizing the security nature  
of the bug.
