SAP Security Notes January 2011 – Review


This patch updates close 13 public vulnerabilities in SAP products. 3 of those vulnerabilities were found by ERPScan researchers Alexander Polyakov and Dmitriy Chastuhin. SAP traditionally published acknowledgements for the found vulnerabilities to security researchers from ERPScan on their acknowledgement page.

The most critical one is a Buffer Overflow in SAP Frontend application that can be exploited to gain unauthorized access to all the workstations that use SAP Frontend (SAP GUI for Windows). This vulnerability has priority 1 according to SAP metrics. Others are Cross-Site scripting vulnerabilities in SAP NetWeaver.
