According to C standards, a number beginning with a 0 is an base 8 number.

So 000235 is legal. It means 157 in decimal.
So 000150 is legal. It means 104 in decimal.
So 000372 is legal. It means 250 in decimal.

So this is address 178.157.104.250 which is a legal IP address.

So there is no serious fault. Just your ignorance of C programming ;-)
