1514066 – Overwriting files during upgrade or EHP installation

Symptom: Programs of the update tools sometimes create files in the file system of the application server. Therefore, the system may sometimes access files that are located in directory areas that are not intended for this context.

Other Terms

Upgrade, EHPI, directory traversal, data integrity

Reason and Prerequisites

The problem is caused by a program design.

Solution

Use the current archive if you want to perform an upgrade or install an Enhancement Package (EHP).

Check whether the attached corrections can be implemented in your system. If all or some of the objects do not exist in your system, you can ignore the relevant corrections.

Depending on the history of the system, the program versions that you currently have in your system may differ from the versions assumed in the note. Therefore, errors may occur during the automatic implementation. You must then adjust the corrections manually and make sure that you implement the changes appropriately. If you are unsure about what to do, contact SAP Support.
