SAP Security Notes March 2011 – Review


SAP released its monthly critical patch update for April 2011 which closes 7 public vulnerabilities in SAP products. 4 of those vulnerabilities were found by ERPScan researchers Alexander Polyakov and Dmitriy Evdokimov.

The most critical one is authentication bypass that can be exploited remotely to gain unauthorized access to SAP NetWeaver systems which has CVSS score 9.0 (priority 1 according to SAP metrics). Others are Cross-Site Scripting and information disclosure vulnerabilities in SAP NetWeaver.
