Hot News note 2928570 patches a critical remote code execution vulnerability in SAP Liquidity Management for Banking. The vulnerability impacts connections using the Apache JServ Protocol (AJP) in Apache Tomcat. AJP connections should be blocked if not required by disabling the AJP Connector. The connections can be exploited to read and process arbitrary files in the Apache web server. This can be abused to perform remote code execution if web applications allow file uploads and the processing of files as JavaServer Pages. Apache Tomcat has been upgraded to harden the AJP Connector. However, SAP does not recommend upgrading the web server. Rather, note 2928570 provides manual procedures for disabling the AJP Connector or securing AJP connections with a secret key.
