​Well, increasingly, more or less every Internet facing API is
JSON-over-HTTP; the amount of JSON in circulation is huge. So, nothing in
the world is 100% debugged, but production JSON parsers are among the
better-tested software suites in the world.  It also helps that the JSON
format is very stripped-down and doesn’t provide a very rich attack
surface.​
