Abstract—Security issues in the Internet of Things (IoT) are

rapidly growing. While much recent research has focused on network

security, authentication, authorization, protocol, web and

mobile (interfaces for IoT devices) security, less attention has been

devoted to software vulnerabilities, especially in IoT firmware.

As a first step towards gathering research community attention

and developing robust defenses, we present a classification of

recently discovered control-hijacking vulnerabilities in select IoT
