In recent years, Internet-of-Things (IoT) platforms and systems have been rapidly emerging. Although IoT is a new technology, new does not mean simpler (than existing networked systems). Contrarily, the complexity (of IoT platforms and systems) is actually being increased in terms of the interactions between the physical world and cyberspace. The increased complexity indeed results in new vulnerabilities. This article seeks to provide a review of the recently discovered logic bugs that are specific to IoT platforms and systems and discuss the lessons we learned from these bugs. In particular, 20 logic bugs and one weakness falling into seven categories of vulnerabilities are reviewed in this survey.
