To wrap up 2017, the last SAP Note Tuesday of the year, SAP has released a total of 19 notes this month. Six of these notes have already been released throughout the course of the month with the remaining 13 released today.
I was given the privilege last week of addressing attendees at the inaugural CyberSecurity for SAP Customers conference in Las Vegas on the topic of GDPR. Specifically, I presented the topic 'Mapping Your SAP Systems to GDPR Compliance Requirements'.
Today SAP has released another batch of its security notes, a regular event which happens every second Tuesday of the month. The total number of notes this month is 32, of which 18 have been released today. The other 14 notes have been released in the course of the past month. Those notes generally concerned re-releases.
Oracle October CPU: Onapsis Contributes to EBS Security by Reporting Almost 60% of the Vulnerabilities, Including Those Most Critical
One of the most important components of securing business-critical applications is to ensure the systems are always up to date with the latest security patches to reduce the risk level. Today Oracle released the last Critical Patch Update (CPU) of the year. In this CPU, Oracle stopped an increasing trend seen in the last three CPUs, where Oracle continually fixed more vulnerabilities during each new CPU. In the latest CPU, Oracle fixed 252 security vulnerabilities.
Since it is the second tuesday of the month, SAP has again published a new set of notes to patch vulnerabilities found in its software. Over the course of the month, counting from the last patch tuesday, a total of 30 new notes were published. Today, half of those notes were posted.
