Clarification of Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory - July 2018 for JAVA SE

Our interpretation of this advisory is that we need to upgrade machines with JRE 8x to JRE 8u181.  Machines with JRE 7x should be upgraded to JRE 7u191.  Machines with JRE 6x should be upgraded to JRE 6u201.  Is this the correct interpretation of this advisory? Should all machines be upgraded to JRE 8u181 instead?

    For JDK 6 and JDK 7 public updates are no longer released. JRE 7u191 and JRE 6u201 are only available to Java SE Support customers. For non-support customers , the latest update release containing all the security patches is JDK/JRE 8u181. So, non-support customers should go with latest JRE 8u181.
