digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 14727] New: std.json incorrectly supports inf and nan


          Issue ID: 14727
           Summary: std.json incorrectly supports inf and nan
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: phobos
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com

The JSON specification intentionally leaves out encodings for Infinity and NaN
as these are global variables in javascript that can be replaced with something

std.json currently encodes double.infinity as inf and double.nan as nan. These
variables can also be replaced with malicious versions.

The correct encoding for double.infinity, -double.infinity and double.nan is

import std.json;

void main()
    assert(JSONValue(double.infinity).toString == "null");
    assert(JSONValue(-double.infinity).toString == "null");
    assert(JSONValue(double.nan).toString == "null");
