It’s the second Tuesday of the month and another set of SAP Security Notes has been released. Since the previous Patch Day in August, SAP has released 32 notes, including 16 out-of-date and another 16 released this morning. One striking observation is that this is the fifth month in a row without a Hot News note; the highest category for notes based on risk. In addition to that, for the three high-priority notes, two of them are updates for a July note and the other one only affects a single country making the risk much smaller.
