## Affected Components Description

One of the principal entry points in all SAP Application Server Java is the
Web Server. As part of this service there are many standard components
and preprocessing the data sent to and received from the users. Because
components are in a critical place, vulnerabilities on them are really
and affect all NetWeaver JAVA based SAP Products.

## Vulnerability Details

SAP Netweaver Java has a stack of standard J2EE filters responsable to do
controls and statistical operations over each received request. The
exists because one of those filters is keeping information about the
different HTTP
methods received by the server, but it is not properly controlling how much
it needs to store that information. After sending a specially crafted
request, an
attacker is able to make that filter raise an OutOfMemoryError, making the
machine crash.

## Solution

SAP has released SAP Note 3056652 which provides patched versions of the
affected components.
