SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (xMII) component for SAP NetWeaver is a software tool used in manufacturing plants to oversee and streamline plant processes. It acts as a real-time data management system to optimize production and inventory levels. xMII also facilitates the integration of machine hardware and software with the plant's enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. 

One vulnerability that the xMII component is susceptible to is the directory traversal vulnerability, identified by the code CVE-2016-2389.

Attackers can use it to extract confidential data, including intellectual property, trade secrets, and personal customer information, leading to reputation damage or legal consequences. The attack can also result in the manipulation or destruction of files, leading to lost productivity and revenue.
