Do not take the risk
Some users are to complacent when it comes to system updates. Since these updates often take a lot of time to complete, users become reluctant to complete them. This opens up the opportunity for their systems to be come vulnerable and they are letting themselves become exposed to threats.

Fix and Patch
I wonder if it's a better idea to release the patches or just blast them all out at one shot so that people can download all the fixes at one shot. It makes for  a shorter down time I reckon? But honestly, the amount of patches that are being released by Oracle right now, it sort of puts a bit of a dampener if you think about just how secure your system has been... Well.. At least they are doing something about it and fixing it and letting their users know I suppose!
