SAP Security Patch Day – December 2021

SAP security Patch day

Today is SAP Security Patch Day! For the last time in 2021, SAP released monthly security updates. Currently, the IT world is in turmoil as earlier this week various information security authorities have drawn attention to a widespread vulnerability called log4j

Log4j - Zero-Day vulnerability for SAP?

From the BSI (link) to the US-CERT (link), authorities issued warnings for log4j, a high severity zero day vulnerability.

SAP customers are worried and are wondering to what extent the critical business applications of SAP SE are affected. The extent of the spread of the vulnerability became clear, even the popular open-source application Apache is affected.

The news about the new vulnerability certainly hit SAP like a bomb. Many customers immediately inquired and SAP is responding promptly. In the meantime, more than 200 Notes (link, requires login) have been published by SAP, many of these notes confirm that specific products are not affected. 

Stay tuned and read regular updates on the Log4j zero day vulnerability - how it can affect your SAP systems, and what you can do to protect your IT infrastructure

SAP did not create all log4j notes in the category “security”. This means that the December release of the SAP Security Patch Day does not list all notes that contain information about the log4j – Zero-Day Vulnerability within SAP products.

The list below shows a few product-specific notes, but SAP may release further notes at any time:
– SAP HANA Advanced Version XS (note 3130698) and
– SAP CC PoS and SAP CC manager – versions 2.0 FP09, 2.0 FP10, 2.0 FP11 PL06 (or lower) and 2.0 FP12 PL04 (or lower) are affected (note 3130499)

Webinar: Why is SAP Security Patching not like Windows Updates?

The webinar, taking place on demand is all about SAP Patch Management and its challenges. The German-speaking SAP User Group (DSAG) and the American colleagues of ASUG asked why SAP security patching cannot be as simple and effective as, for example, Windows updates.
SAP Security Services
SAP Cybersecurity- Security News
Many companies have recognized the need for SAP cybersecurity, but many have also realized that they cannot accomplish this alone. There are many reasons for this. It can be due to the internal teams' workload or due to the employee's level of knowledge. However, there is a solution that neither burdens your internal staff nor demands additional knowledge. A specialized managed SAP Security Service allows you to harden mission-critical systems, detect and promptly counteract non-compliance, and implement monitoring with accurate anomaly detection.

SAP security provider SecurityBridge—now operating in the U.S.—today announced the full integration of its SAP Security Platform with the Microsoft Sentinel cloud-native Security Information and Event Manager (SIEM) platform and its membership to MISA. SecurityBridge was nominated to MISA because of the integration of its SAP Controller to the Microsoft Sentinel dashboard. SecurityBridge is a Smart Data Adapter that significantly simplifies security monitoring of critical and highly specific business applications.

Mai 2023 müssen betroffene Unternehmen ein System zur Angriffserkennung eingeführt haben.
