With SAP EM 9.2 SP06 a new activity type “Post Processing Activity” has been introduced. It can be used to execute certain activities once instead of multiple times when processing event messages.
Only one post processing activity can be assigned to each rule set and it will be executed exactly once after rule set processing is done. This allows the EM developer to trigger follow-up activities in a mass enabled way instead of triggering the single action possibly multiple times during rule set processing. To make this work rule set activities which are executed during the rule set processing have to collect all data that is necessary for the post processing activity instead of triggering the actions itself. Check in this SAP document to see how to do it: Post Processing Activity to boost performance of EM – TM integration

Researchers able to hijack server and steal card details
Point-of-Sale systems from SAP had a vulnerability that allowed them to be hacked using a $25 Raspberry Pi or similar device, according to research unveiled at the Hack in the Box conference in Singapore last week.
Critical vulnerabilities in SAP's POS – since resolved – created a means for hackers not only to steal customers' card data but to gain unfettered control over the server, enabling them to change prices of goods with the help of a simple device, according to ERPScan.
SAP developed a patch after being alerted to the problem by ERPScan in April, allowing the enterprise app security specialists to go public with their discovery last week.
The root cause of the problem was that pre-patch SAP POS Xpress Server systems failed to perform any authentication checks for critical functionality that requires user identity. As a result, administrative and other privileged functions could be accessed without any authentication.
