Vulnerability in EPS_DELETE_FILE RFC function

Hi people,

I´m trying to understand the vulnerability rose in the last BlackHat but I think I´m not getting the point so I would like to ask to you what I´m missing.

As far as I understand, in case you have a user with access to FM EPS_DELETE_FILE or in case you are able to use TMSADM or SAPCPIC (because you know the password of them) you can delete files in any place where SAP (that is, sidadm) can access with proper rights.

If this is the vulnerability then I don´t understand it because in any case defined previously you can execute the FM and in its initial screen you can select any directory you want (DIR_NAME). So from my point of view, the problem is if you give access to that FM to someone undesirable but this is a different (role) problem.

So, because for sure is not so simple as I wrote before, means that I´m not undestanding something (or anything at all!). What am I missing??

Thanks,

Félix

    Take a look to OSS note 1497003.
