Telemetry module is not validating JSON while trying to anonymize hard drives serail numbers:

Hi Michał,

Many thanks for your fix!

I see the issue you’re facing happens in version 14.2.11:

and we had a fix for it, which was backported to version 14.2.12:

The problem seems to be that ‘serial’ itself is empty, and when we try to replace the empty string in the serialized map ('m_str') with ‘deleted’, we get a string which cannot be loaded to JSON:

Even if ‘m_str’ itself was empty, but ‘serial’ was valid - we wouldn’t see this error, since

m_str.replace(serial, 'deleted')
would return an empty string, which could be loaded to JSON.

Can you please try to apply this fix and see that it’s working?
