A review, best practices and tips and tricks for this months’ SAP Security patches – Fixing SAP vulnerabilities.
A new month, a new SAP Security Patch Tuesday! The 2nd Tuesday in the month where 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. This month’s SAP Security note 3287291 contains a fix for a vulnerability reported by Protect4S research. 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, counting from the last Patch Tuesday, there are a total of 26 new and updated SAP Security notes. Just 1 of them has the highest HotNews rating. Some newly released SAP Security notes of attention (above CVSS 8) are:
- Customers using SAP Business Objects should address the note with number 3256787 – [CVE-2023-24530] Unrestricted Upload of File in SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform (CMC)).

For organisations using SAP software it is important to have a process and procedures in place that ensures that 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).
