A note with CVSS 6.3 for component FIN-FSCM-IHC was released by SAP on 12.01.2021. The correction/advisory 2743329 was described with "Switchable authorization checks for RFC module in In-House-Cash." and affects the system type ABAP.
A workaround exists, according to SAP Security Advisory team. It is advisable to implement the correction as project***.
The vulnerability addressed is missing authorization check within ABAP.
Missing authority checks are still the most common security defect related to authorizations in custom code. 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 specificationThis note has been re-released with the updated 'validity' information. - An authenticated user may call certain function modules from SAP Deposits Management without being properly authorized, resulting in an escalation of privileges.
Additional authorization checks are introduced via the Switchable Authorization Framework (SACF) for new authorization object S_RFC for Scenarios IHC_PN (In House Cash Payment Order and Item actions) and IHC_PRQ (In House Cash Payment Request actions and Document Reversal) Although an alternative solution exists, it is advisable to apply the correction! This is the workaround, which was suggested by the SAP security experts: "Maintain strict governance on object S_RFC (no "*" in function groups or names) in all user roles. Alternatively, implement UCON and switch off remote capability of unused function modules.".
