Moderately serious security vulnerabilities of the SAP Patchday in February 2024

In February 2024, moderate security vulnerabilities were also identified in various SAP products that could potentially put companies at risk.

One of these concerns SAP Bank Account Management (BAM). A missing authorization check was discovered in versions SAP_FIN 618, SAP_FIN 730 and S4CORE 100 and 101. This vulnerability could allow attackers to access confidential bank account information or carry out unauthorized transactions.

Furthermore, a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability was detected in SAP CRM (WebClient UI). Versions such as S4FND 102, S4FND 103, WEBCUIF 731 and others are affected. By exploiting this vulnerability, attackers could inject malicious code into the web application, causing data leaks or session hijacking.

In addition, an information disclosure vulnerability was discovered in SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP (SAP Kernel). Versions such as KERNEL 7.53, KERNEL 7.54 and others are affected. An attacker could extract confidential information from the system or initiate additional attacks if this vulnerability is exploited.

Urgent measures required

Organizations that use SAP products are strongly encouraged to do so:

  • Apply patches: Immediate application of available patches and updates is critical to mitigate these vulnerabilities.
  • Implement security measures: Additional security measures such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems and regular security audits should be implemented to strengthen system defenses.
  • Stay informed: Continuously monitor security advisories from SAP and relevant cybersecurity authorities to stay informed of emerging threats.
