SAP Security Notes, May 2020

Hot News Note 2835979 patches a critical code injection vulnerability in Service Data Download. The vulnerability can be exploited by attackers to inject malicious code into the ST-PI plugin for NetWeaver Application Server ABAP (AS ABAP). This could lead to the complete compromise of ABAP servers.  The vulnerability carries a base CVSS score of 9.9/10 and can be exploited over the network.

Hot News Note 2885244 carries a similar CVSS score of 9.8/10 and can be exploited to bypass authentication using REST Webservices (BIPRWS) for Live Data Connect in the SAP Business Intelligence Platform.

This prevents logons to the CMS without a password when using trusted authentication.  The fix is available for version 2.4 of Live Data Connect. Customers using earlier versions are advised to upgrade to version 2.4.
