Advisory

The advisory for ABAP adresses a "Missing Authorization check in TSW Supply Chain Visualization". SAP Note 2756551 was released on 11.08.2020 and should be implemented during monthly patch process . The implementation demands a downtime. Component IS-OIL-DS-TSW has a medium risk of exploitation, according to the manufacturers security and response team.

Following the SAP Security Advisory team, a workaround does not exist.

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 specification

TSW Supply Chain Visualization does not perform necessary authorization checks for an authenticated user, resulting in escalation of privileges.

Solution

TSW Supply Chain Visualization now properly checks the authorization of the user.
