By 9 November 2022No Comments

A review, best practices and tips and tricks for this months’ SAP Security patches – Fixing SAP vulnerabilities.  

It’s that day of the month again, SAP Security Patch Tuesday! The 2nd Tuesday in the month when SAP releases their patches to fix vulnerabilities in SAP products. Either being discovered by SAP internally, or by external researchers such as Protect4S’ own researchers. All trying to improve SAP’s product security and have SAP customers run their SAP systems more secure.  

As always, customers should assess the list of released SAP Security notes and apply them where applicable and conform their SAP Vulnerability Management process and procedures. This month’s patches do have some high CVSS scores. Notes of attention are:  

  • Customers using SAP Business Objects should address the HotNews note with number 3243924 – [CVE-2022-41203] Insecure Deserialization of Untrusted Data in SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform (Central Management Console and BI Launchpad). This note has a CVSS score of 9,9/10 and could highly compromise the Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability of the system. 
  • A HotNews note has been released for SAPUI5 with number 3249990 – [CVE-2021-20223] Multiple Vulnerabilities in SQlite bundled with SAPUI5. This vulnerability has a CVSS score of 9,8/10 and is in use with many SAP customers so make sure to check your SAP landscape for this vulnerability.

For organisations using SAP software it is important to have a process and procedures in place that makes sure every month the SAP Security notes are reviewed, assessed for relevance and risk and that patches are applied. The Protect4S Vulnerability Management solution supports this process by automatically scanning your SAP landscape for missing SAP Security notes and apply them in an automated way for ABAP systems (for the patches with automatic correction instructions).
