This post by SAP Product Security Response Team shares information on Patch Day Security Notes* that are released on second Tuesday of every month and fix vulnerabilities discovered in SAP products. SAP strongly recommends that the customer visits the Support Portal and applies patches on a priority to protect his SAP landscape.
On 8th of March 2016, SAP Security Patch Day saw the release of 14 security notes. Additionally, there are 4 updates to previously released Patch Day Security Notes.
As of March 01, 2016, SAP security note prioritization is based on CVSS v3 Base score. The revised prioritization scheme is aligned with the industry’s best practice, and to provide better transparency to our customers. From March 2016 security patch day, all patch day security notes will carry CVSS v3 Base score and vector information to assist our customers in their risk assessment.
