As a security vendor and Research Labs with the goal of protecting our customer’s business-critical applications we also have the continuous balance of proactively informing the community about emerging threats affecting their critical applications. A big part of this is our continuous work with vendors to help them secure vulnerabilities in their software. Today, for the third time, the July 2017 Oracle Critical Patch Update breaks a record on number of patched bugs with 308 vulnerabilities solved.
Today is the the second Tuesday of July and as our readers already know that today SAP released its monthly Security Notes. Here is our monthly report on how to improve your ERP security and take care of your most critical information. Today SAP released 16 new security notes, summing up to a total of 23 taking into account the ones published after second Tuesday last month. For the third month in a row there aren’t any notes tagged as Hot News.
This is the fourth consecutive blog post in our series on how to make Oracle E-Business Suite more secure. In this post, we will focus on reducing the attack surface - something that is a critical component for any successful information security strategy. The more you can reduce the components that are exposed to attackers (and to vulnerabilities), the more you can focus on keeping your exposed systems secure.
For a third week in a row, we’re providing you with best practices for securing your Oracle E-Business Suite implementation. Today, we are going to talk about a common topic: password security. When it comes to password policy, the first thing that probably comes to mind is having a secure password. That is why in addition to all network security layers, it is very important to have a proper password policy, along with a users list and groups so to follow a guideline of how passwords are formed.
Last week, we begin a blogpost series with the objective of reviewing Oracle E-Business Suite Security. The first publication detailed how to activate the Server Security Feature, and in today’s post we will focus on password hashing. We will analyze the different types of hashing and how it is implemented in Oracle E-Business Suite.
