Security vulnerabilities for the month of July 2021:


CVE-2021-27610 – Improper Authentication in SAP NetWeaver ABAP Server and ABAP Platform

Base Score 9.0

Affected component: SAP NetWeaver ABAP Server and ABAP platform

The ABAP Server does not differentiate as to whether communication via RFC or http is taking place between the application server in the same SAP environment or with a server outside the environment. Attackers are therefore able to read ‘credentials’ from internal communication. Multiple other attack scenarios are thus conceivable.

We recommend that you patch this vulnerability immediately!
