    Exclamation Security patches.

    Does security patches need to be applied when you don't have the necessity to apply?

    Applying them is a precautionary measure or unwanted trouble.

    Guru's and techies in this field know this better.

    Oracle releases may be 3 to 4 patches a year means every quarter your production db's cannot be updated with a patch.

    Jan, July and Oct every year ORacle releases the security patch. Would you do recommend to apply the patches every quarter?

    I have my databases secure between double firewall and no transactions go out side the lan nor do any come in. In this case why i need one.

    I want to know the experts practice in real world

    Thanks for your time.
