An important area of SAP Security is the analysis of the customer's own SAP programs, which are classically written in the proprietary SAP language ABAP. Here, too, as in all programming languages, security vulnerabilities can be programmed - whether consciously or unconsciously. However, the patterns of security vulnerabilities in ABAP code differ from those in Java stacks or Windows programs. The goal of these conventional programs is usually to either crash the program (buffer overflow) or to artificially execute the program's own code (code injection). Both is not possible in ABAP, since a crash of a process causes nothing else than the creation of an entry in the log database (Dump ST22) and a subsequent termination of the report with return to the menu starting point. So a direct manipulation as in other high level languages or servers is not possible. However, there are other manipulation possibilities.
Costs: 75% savings on subsequent corrections. Significant reduction in development and maintenance costs. ABAP code: 84% faster and more fail-safe programs. Improved performance reduces runtime and hardware utilization. Targeted corrections minimize system errors and downtime.

SAP offers a huge toolbox of different technologies to support business processes. The usefulness of their use is essentially determined by the task and its technical requirements. We have gained a lot of valuable experience in the following technologies, which we would like to make available to you.
If you need to reinstall a Support Package because of errors or because a SPAM update is required, reset its status. Resetting does not mean that the system is at an old state. Note that your system is inconsistent when you reset the status after items have already been imported (for example, after the DDIC_IMPORT step and following). Resetting the status should only be used to troubleshoot the issue and you should repeat the playback as soon as possible. Procedure To reset the status of a Support Package or Queue, select Add Status Reset. Result After updating the status, the corresponding entries in the cofile and in the log file are deleted. The support package must then be fully reloaded. The transaction SPAM starts the insertion with the step CHECK_REQUIREMENTS [page 26].
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" simplifies tasks in the area of the SAP basis and complements missing functions of the standard.
The following figure shows the logging for the SAP standard group "SUPER".
