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 updated ‘Solution’ information. A Server Side Request Forgery vulnerability in the AS ABAP import/export functionality for batch input allows an autenticated attacker to direct requests to an malicious webserver resulting in the compromise of used NTLM credentials.
