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 customers visit the Support Portal and apply patches on a priority to protect their SAP landscape.
On 10th of January 2017, SAP Security Patch Day saw the release of 18 Patch Day Security Notes. 1 of the released Security Notes has Very High priority (Hot News).
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. For further details, please refer to our blog on CVSS v3.
