Since SAP uses an explicit authorization model, an authority checks must be coded in order to be executed. If an explicit check is not coded, all users have access. This type of vulnerability not only exists in SAP standard it also exists in customer coding. Check your custom developments for vulnerabilities that pose a risk to your systems. SecurityBridge helps detect code vulnerabilities before they are implemented in production.
Risk specificationETM and BOS do not perform necessary authorization checks for an authenticated user, resulting in escalation of privileges.
The affected functions have now been enforced to properly check access restrictions.
