The SAP Management Console (SAP MC) provides a common framework for centralized system management. It allows users to 
monitor and perform basic
administration tasks on the SAP system centrally, thus simplifying system administration. Through this component, 
administrators can start, stop and
restart instances, monitor system alerts, display log and trace files, etc.

This service is enabled by default in every SAP system.

developer traces, etc.

Furthermore, some of the unauthenticated methods perform security sensitive operations that may impact over the 
integrity, confidentiality and/or
availability of the SAP system.

Technical details about this issue are not disclosed at this moment with the purpose of providing enough time to
