SAP encourages the responsible disclosure of security vulnerabilities and therefore requests the researchers to follow the following general guidelines:
- If you have detected a vulnerability in one of our software products – either in the latest or in a former product version –you shall inform us about the issue and follow the guidelines and processes in accordance with our Portal page “Report a Security Vulnerability to SAP”.
- Give SAP sufficient time to develop suitable fixes.
- Do not publicize vulnerabilities until SAP customers have had enough time to deploy fixes.
- As a rule of thumb, we suggest respecting an implementation time of three months. We ask all security researchers to not disseminate any kind of information or tools that would help to exploit the vulnerability during that time.
- Provide us all of your external disclosures beforehand, such as advisories or presentations with SAP product security content for a review.
We honestly appreciate your work and certainly want to show this appreciation through credits on a public Web site. Nevertheless, SAP reserves the right to change or delete credits at any time.
