Bulletins
    

This release contains general and security-only bulletins. Security-only bulletins are applicable to new security fixes only. No new bug fixes are included, but bug fixes from earlier patch and update releases are included.
 
If the installation of all new security and bug fixes is required, you must apply all bulletins in this release. In some cases, the general release bulletin will supersede the security- only bulletin. This is not an issue as the general release bulletin contains both the new security and bug fixes.
  
The security-only bulletins are identified by bulletin IDs that end in “SG”.

Image Profiles

VMware patch and update releases contain general and security-only image profiles. Security-only image profiles are applicable to new security fixes only. No new bug fixes are included, but bug fixes from earlier patch/update releases are included.
  
The general release image profile supersedes the security-only profile. Application of the general release image profile applies to new security and bug fixes.
  
The security-only image profiles are identified with the additional "s" identifier in the image profile name.
