How to check SAP’s latest security patches

SAP releases critical security patches for every month.
These updates are released on second Tuesday of every month and fix vulnerabilities discovered in SAP products. SAP strongly recommends that the customer visits the Support Portal and applies patches on a priority to protect their SAP landscape from getting attacked by such vulnerabilities.

Please find below monthly updates on the security patches (We will keep updating this post with new patch day posts from SAP)

What is a CVSS score?

CVSS stands for Common Vulnerability Scoring System which is an industry standard to provide ratings/scores to severe security related vulnerabilities which could hamper the systems. SAP assigns a particular CVSS score depending on the risk that a particular issue provides to the complete SAP system.

CVSS score ranges from 0 (Lowest) to 10 (High).
