Patch Set Update and Critical Patch Update October 2015 Availability Document
- CPU Security Alerts October 2015
For Oracle Database 18.104.22.168 and Oracle Grid Infrastructure access the PSUs from here – if you have only a single instance database you can safely take the Combo patch as you’ll get downtime anyways – but for customers running RAC you need to evaluate the OJVM component as this will incur downtime which the database-only patch does not require as it can be applied rolling.
