CPU for october 2012 is out.

From the blog of Steven Chan,

The Critical Patch Update (CPU) for October 2012 was released on October 16, 2012. Oracle strongly recommends applying the patches as soon as possible.
The Critical Patch Update Advisory is the starting point for relevant information. It includes a list of products affected, pointers to obtain the patches, a summary of the security vulnerabilities, and links to other important documents.
Supported products that are not listed in the "Supported Products and Components Affected" Section of the advisory do not require new patches to be applied.
Also, it is essential to review the Critical Patch Update supporting documentation referenced in the Advisory before applying patches, as this is where you can find important pertinent information.
The Critical Patch Update Advisory is available at the following location:
The next four Critical Patch Update release dates are:
  • January 15, 2013
  • April 16, 2013
  • July 16, 2013
  • October 15, 2013

To enable the highest level of support to be provided, Oracle recommends that customers on older releases of Oracle E-Business Suite should upgrade to the latest relevant release for them (12.1, 12.0, or 11.5.10 CU2, as applicable) as soon as possible.
Note: Only the explicitly listed releases are tested for vulnerabilities addressed by this critical patch update. Customers on a release prior to the earliest release specified in the tables must upgrade to a supported release before applying any of the patches listed.
Review to the following documents for general information related to the Oracle CPU Program, Critical Patch Updates for other Oracle products related to Oracle E-Business Suite, or previous Oracle Security Alerts:

In This Document

Section 1: Preparing to Apply Oracle E-Business Suite Critical Patches

To help you determine which Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Fusion Middleware, and Oracle Database patches to apply, you should make a list of all Oracle products installed in your system, together with their full versions.

Having identified the Critical Patch Update patches needed for each Oracle home, you should apply them to one Oracle product at a time in that Oracle home, and then move on to the next Oracle home. Depending on your configuration, you may need to apply multiple Oracle Database and Oracle Fusion Middleware patches.
Note: CPU patches listed in this knowledge document for Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Database, and Oracle Fusion Middleware are cumulative, and therefore include fixes from previous Oracle security alerts and Critical Patch Updates.
After you have reviewed the relevant Oracle E-Business Suite documentation, collected the product information and examined related Critical Patch Update documentation, rank your business systems in the order of risk. First, apply updates to any systems that have the highest risk. For example, start with systems that are external to a firewall before updating systems within an internal network.
It is recommended that you patch your Oracle environment in the following order:
  1. Any separate or remote Oracle Fusion Middleware or Oracle HTTP Server Database home, including a separate Metadata Repository home.
  2. Oracle E-Business Suite Database home.
  3. Identity Management and Infrastructure homes.
  4. Oracle Fusion Middleware Application tier home.
  5. Oracle E-Business Suite applications.
Note: Ensure that you successfully complete patching a given area before continuing to the next.
Patches are available from My Oracle Support. Before downloading patches, review all patches to be applied, and the releases to which those patches apply. For an Oracle E-Business Suite Oracle home, also look for any release notes or instructions specific for the home type.. Before installing a patch, unzip and read its supporting documentation, including any specific instructions for your particular Oracle home installation. In particular, review relevant Known Issues sections before starting the installation.
When applying patches, ensure that all tiers are at the correct release level, and all processes run from a particular Oracle home are shut down before patching that Oracle home. If you have multiple Oracle product installations, the Critical Patch Update requires the application (middle) tier to be patched immediately after the database tier. This allows the database post-installation scripts to be run before starting and using the application tier.
If assistance is required from Oracle Support, you should provide complete information about the products being patched. Because you are administering one Oracle product, one Oracle home at a time for its own Critical Patch Update patch, there will generally need to be one Support service request per Oracle home.

Section 2: Patches to Apply to Oracle E-Business Suite Oracle homes

This section describes the Critical Patch Update documentation and patches for the Oracle Database, Oracle Fusion Middleware, and Oracle Developer Suite Oracle homes used by Oracle E-Business Suite.
Note: Oracle Database, Oracle Fusion Middleware and Oracle Developer Suite critical patches are cumulative, and therefore include all previous CPU content.
  • Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 installs three Oracle homes - one each for the Oracle Database, Oracle Fusion Middleware 10.1.3 (Java), and Oracle Fusion Middleware 10.1.2 (Tools).
  • Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i installs three Oracle homes - one each for the Oracle Database, Oracle Application Server (Oracle HTTP Server), and Oracle Developer 6i.
Before applying a patch, you must set your ORACLE_HOME environment variable to point to the relevant Oracle home.
Table 1 lists the Oracle E-Business Suite Database home critical update patches. To identify the database releases certified with your Oracle E-Business Suite Release, see Certifications in My Oracle Support.
