The following information will help you with the installation of an Oracle Critical Patch Update (CPU) for Symantec Data Loss Prevention (DLP).

Users of Enterprise Oracle must obtain the CPU from Oracle and work with Oracle if any issues are encountered.
Users of Standard Oracle will need to download the CPU from the Broadcom support portal.
Once Oracle releases a new CPU, we will post it to the support portal after testing and validating the CPU.
