The October 2012 security "Critical Patch Update" information and downloads are now available from My Oracle Support (MOS).

See http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/security/alerts-086861.html and in particular Document 1475188.1 on My Oracle Support (MOS), http://support.oracle.com, which includes security CVE mappings for Oracle Sun products.
