SAP said earlier today that it has issued no less than thirteen high, medium and low-severity security patches to its enterprise software.

The security patches cover four denial of service vulnerabilities, two sets of directory traversal and 'missing authorization' holes, a cross-site scripting issue and a SQL injection flaw, and finally, four miscellaneous security shortcomings in the user software.

As is almost always the case, SAP does not include any spedific details about what security flaws its patches address on its public site, nor how they are being implemented at this time.

The company also took the unusual decision to update thirteen more security flaws that were already patched in July, but without providing any specific comments as to what those updated patches were for, or how they would integrate with today's patches.

A total of eleven security researchers were responsible for reporting this month's security flaws, and they tried to provide some vague details in how they would be implemented.

Notable among those researchers are Daria Prosochkina, Mathieu Geli and Vahagn Vardanyan from the popular research security firm ERP Scan. The company has also been involved with other similar security patch reviews from other software vendors.

ERP Scan has reported critical security vulnerabilities in SAP assets, large portions of which were thanks to user configuration errors.

Not to be outdone in any of this, SAP has also provided the following official statement-- "Security patches for our SAP software are available for download on our Service Marketplace website. We strongly advise our enterprise customers to secure their SAP infrastructure by applying the available security patches immediately, and to let us know directly if there are any problems in their installation."
