The following vulnerability was published for libxslt.

| In numbers.c in libxslt 1.1.33, a type holding grouping characters of
| an xsl:number instruction was too narrow and an invalid
| character/length combination could be passed to
| xsltNumberFormatDecimal, leading to a read of uninitialized stack
| data.

The oss-fuzz report and testcases are not public at this moment, but
still filling the bug according to source code view and patch to be
applied. I have no futher details unfortunately.
