If your IoT development is based on Zigbee,perhaps Zephyr CVE will bring to your consideration. (6th Oct 2021)

Preface: Ensure that the JSON parser does not try to write a potentially unlimited number of elements into a C array of a fixed size.

Background: Zephyr is a small real-time operating system (RTOS) for connected, resource-constrained and embedded devices (with an emphasis on microcontrollers) supporting multiple architectures and released under the Apache License 2.0. Zephyr includes a kernel, and all components and libraries, device drivers, protocol stacks, file systems, and firmware updates, needed to develop full application software. Furthermore the footprint as small as 8K.

Vulnerability details: Till now, the CVSS score not been defined yet. According to 4 different vulnerabilities registered this month. There are two different vulnerabilities related to BLE. Besides, a vulnerability related to Zigbee. The remaining one is related to JSON decoder. The flaw of JSON decoder display as below: When using JSON_OBJ_DESCR_ARRAY_ARRAY, the subarray is has the token type JSON_TOK_LIST_START, but then assigns to the object part of the union. “arr_parse” then takes the offset of the array-object (which has nothing todo with the list) treats it as relative to the parent object, and stores the length of the subarray in there.
