ERP Applications Coming Under Increasing Attack
July 25, 2018 / Sean Michael Kerner
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications are critical to the operations of many organizations and are increasingly coming under attack, according to a new report. The 30-page ERP Applications Under Fire report was released on July 25 as a joint effort from Onapsis and Digital Shadows. Among the high-level findings in the report is that there has been a 100 percent increase in the number of publicly available exploits for ERP applications over the past three years. Those exploits are not going un-used either, with the researchers uncovering multiple campaigns against ERP systems. While there are zero-day vulnerabilities that are reported in ERP systems, the report found that most of the attacks exploit un-patched systems, as well as systems that have insecure configurations.
