Applying a bug/security patch to Oracle Database

Currently Being Moderated

We have 2 servers which run ArcSDE 10 by ESRI which we are forced to keep at Oracle because of the software manufacturer's requirements .  Since Oracle does not release patches for anymore, I need to know whether I can apply the security patch for a different version to these databases.  Note I do not want to upgrade, just apply the bug fix.  For example, on my other servers, which run I am applying patch 17163634. Could I use this one, or perhaps an earlier one, say for  Or am I just out of luck until ESRI allows us to upgrade Oracle?  FWIW- we're on Windows Server 2008 64-bit.


Thanks in advance.
