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.
At Onapsis we recognize that information security means more than just protecting your business-critical applications from possible invaders. Worldwide, we see cybersecurity regulations maturing, leading to added pressure for companies to stay compliant. It is clear that, apart from the obvious technical component, the legal aspects of the information security domain demand a growing slice of attention to maintain business prosperity.
At Onapsis we are dedicated to continuously improving security in business-critical applications. Today Onapsis Research Labs released the first Oracle Security In-Depth (OSID) paper.
SAP HANA is a very fast growing product in many SAP environments, that has moved away from just an in-memory database to a complete application plus database system. In today’s blogpost we’ll talk about the SAP HANA internal communication interface, discuss its use in different scenarios, the configuration parameters involved and the different options that SAP HANA administrators should consider to secure their systems. We’ll also perform an analysis of the default configuration introduced in SPS 12 reviewing different parameters and how they impact overall security.
