SAP News Overview for August 2022

September 23, 2022

SAP releases August 2022 security updates 

On 9th of August 2022, SAP released 5 new and 2 updated Security Notes. There is only one hot news note this month.

There is only one hot news this month, and that is SAP Security Note #2622660. This note offers updates to SAP Business Client, including the latest Chromium fixes that have been tested.

The most severe of new vulnerabilities is CVE-2022-32245 (CVSS score of 8.2), which could allow an unauthenticated attacker “to retrieve sensitive information in plain text over the network”. Security Note #3210823 addresses a vulnerability in SAP Business Objects that could expose sensitive information to unauthorized parties.

The second information disclosure vulnerability affects the SAP BO monitoring base. The vulnerability has been fixed in SAP Security Note #3213507 and tagged with CVSS 5.2. This score is subject to change as the score value does not match the assigned CVSS vector. According to the vector, the CVSS score should be 6.9. Unlike the previous vulnerability, an attacker would need authenticated access with high privileges to the same physical/logical network in order to successfully exploit it.

SAP Security Note #3213524, tagged with a CVSS score of 5.2, fixes an information disclosure vulnerability in the SAP BusinessObjects BI platform comments database. The prerequisites for exploiting the vulnerability and the possible impact on the application are exactly the same as for the vulnerability that was fixed with #3213507.
