The October 2010 Solaris OS CPU (Critical Patch Updates) containing all available Security, Data Corruption, and System Availability fixes are now available from My Oracle Support (MOS) and SunSolve.
See http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/security/alerts-086861.html and in particular Document 1446032.1 on My Oracle Support (MOS), http://support.oracle.com, which includes CVE mappings for Oracle Sun products.
To access the Solaris OS CPUs on MOS, login, select the "Patches & Updates" tab and in the "Patch Search" box, click on "Product or Family (Advanced Search)". Select "Solaris Operating System" from the product drop down menu, select the Release(s) you are interested in, e.g. "Solaris 10 Operating System", select "Type" and "Patchset" from the drop down menus on the next line, and click "Search". This will show all the available patch clusters and bundles for your search criteria. The October 2010 CPUs have titles of the form "CPU OS Cluster 2010/10".
The Solaris OS CPUs are archived copies of the Solaris OS Recommended Patch Clusters. See http://blogs.sun.com/patch/entry/solaris_critical_patch_updates_cpus for further details.
