SAP Patches Critical Command Injection Vulnerabilities

Enterprise software maker SAP on Tuesday released 10 new and two updated security notes as part of its March 2024 Security Patch Day, calling attention to serious bugs in business-facing products.

Three of the notes are marked ‘hot news’ — the highest severity rating in SAP’s playbook — and resolve critical vulnerabilities in the Chromium browser in Business Client, Build Apps, and NetWeaver AS Java.

The most severe is an update that brings the latest Chrome patches to Business Client. Now running Chromium version 121.0.6167.184, the update resolves 29 security defects in the browser, including two critical-severity bugs and 15 high-severity issues.

The company documented the second serious bug as CVE-2019-10744 (CVSS score of 9.4), a critical vulnerability in the lodash utility library in Build Apps. Applications built using a flawed iteration of the tool allow attackers to run unauthorized commands on the system, according to a warning from application security firm Onapsis.

Build Apps version 4.9.145 addresses the flaw and applications should be rebuilt using this or a newer iteration of the programming tool.

The third hot news note released on SAP’s March 2024 Security Patch Day addresses CVE-2024-22127 (CVSS score of 9.1) a code injection flaw in the Administrator Log Viewer plugin of NetWeaver AS Java.

An incomplete list of file types prohibited for upload allows an attacker to upload arbitrary files, which could lead to command injection.

“This would enable the attacker to run commands which can cause high impact on confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the application. The patch provides an extended list of prohibited file types,” Onapsis noted.

On Tuesday, SAP also published three high-priority security notes, including an update to an August 2023 note addressing an improper authentication flaw in Commerce Cloud that could allow attackers to authenticate without a passphrase.

The new high-priority security notes address a denial-of-service bug in HANA XS Classic and HANA XS Advanced, related to the use of the HTTP/2 protocol, and a path traversal issue in the central management console of the BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform, which exists because of a vulnerable version of Apache Struts.

The remaining six security notes address medium-severity vulnerabilities in NetWeaver, Fiori Front End Server, and ABAP Platform.

SAP makes no mention of any of these vulnerabilities being exploited in the wild, but threat actors are known to have targeted flaws in SAP applications for which patches have been released.
