Vulnerabilities: February 2024 Highlights

[CVE-2024-22131] Code Injection vulnerability in SAP ABA (Application Basis) (SAP Note 3420923)

A vulnerable interface can be used by an attacker hence allowing them to perform actions for which they would normally be unpermitted.

[CVE-2024-24743] XXE vulnerability in SAP NetWeaver AS JAVA (Guided Procedures) (SAP Note 3426111)

SAP NetWeaver AS JAVA allows an unauthenticated attacker to submit a malicious request with a crafted XML file over the network. When parsed by the network, this will then enable them to access sensitive files and data vulnerable to an escalation of privileges.

[CVE-2024-25642] Improper Certificate Validation in SAP Cloud Connector (SAP Note 3424610)

Due to improper validation of certificate in SAP Cloud Connector, an attacker can impersonate the genuine servers to interact with SCC and therefore break the mutual authentication.

[CVE-2024-22132] Code Injection vulnerability in SAP IDES Systems (SAP Note 3421659)

SAP IDES ECC-systems contain code that permits the execution of arbitrary program code of a user’s choice.
