We have many of our databases in queue to 22.214.171.124 upgrade. Just curious to know if 126.96.36.199 includes Security CPU patches...I tried checking MOS ID 742060.1 but unable to figure out.
Appreciate your input.
Following the patch number for PSU which is the latest one i.e 188.8.131.52.5
Note id - 13343424 (184.108.40.206.5 Patch Set Update (PSU))
The Patch Set Updates and Critical Patch Updates that are released each quarter contain the same security fixes. However, they use different patching mechanisms, and Patch Set Updates include both security and recommended bug fixes. Consider the following guidelines when you are deciding to apply Patch Set Updates instead of Critical Patch Updates. Critical Patch Updates are applied only on the base release version, for example 10.2.0.4.0. Patch Set Updates can be applied on the base release version or on any earlier Patch Set Update. For example, 220.127.116.11.2 can be applied on 18.104.22.168.1 and 22.214.171.124.0. Once a Patch Set Update has been applied, the recommended way to get future security content is to apply subsequent Patch Set Updates. Reverting from an applied Patch Set Update back to the Critical Patch Update, while technically possible, requires significant time and effort, and is not advised.

Best approach for Oracle database patching sequence to latest/required patchset along with CPU/PSU/any-other-one-off patch [ID 865255.1]
