medium Nessus Plugin ID 151808
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote SAP NetWeaver server is affected by a code injection vulnerability.


A code injection vulnerability exists in SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP (Reconciliation Framework). ABAP Server and ABAP Platform may allow a high privileged attacker to inject code that can be executed by the application. An attacker could potentially delete critical information and make the SAP system completely unavailable.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Apply the appropriate patch according to the vendor advisory.
