We just learned today that three of the thirty-one security patches sent out by SAP late yesterday are to address various security holes in the company’s software for the Defense Forces and Public Security.

Particularly, SAP's Defense Forces & Public Security, and SAP's Mobile Defense & Security components are highly susceptible to a missing authorization check vulnerability.

``This issue potentially enables an attacker to easily read, edit or delete restricted information and isn't usually considered critical,`` asserted Alexander Polyakov, CTO and co-founder at ERP Scan.

“But the effect of even such low-impact security vulnerabilities could be devastating when it comes to armed forces,” he warned.

SAP's Defense Forces & Public Security software department directly addresses armed forces, police, and aid organizations. It also offers ERP technology optimized to their particular needs. The software suite offers various functions such as mapping organizational structures, material and personnel resource planning, accounting and funds management, materials management and much more.

To be sure, other significant security patches in SAP’s December trove include a fix for a directory flaw traversal in SAP's UserAdmin Application and another patch for a potential remote code execution bug in SAP's BI Platform.

Now that the December patch is out, security professionals say that yearly totals can be compiled. SAP released an incredible 315 patches throughout 2016, slightly less than last year.

As usual, cross-site scripting (XSS) remains the most common security vulnerability type, ERP Scan reports. We have invited SAP to comment on ERP Scan’s take on its December patches and we’ll update this story when we learn more.
