OES 2 sp3 security patch list?

Can someone provide a link to any security fixes provided by the OES 2 sp3 patch over just sp2? I have a handful of servers still at SP2 and I don't have a compelling reason to touch them right now unless there are specific security holes that apply in our situation.

Thanks,

Is OES2 SP2 no longer being supported a compelling enough reason to migrate
those servers to OES2 SP3 (on SLES10 SP4)? See
http://support.novell.com/lifecycle/ and in particular

That's probably the wrong question.

OES2SP2 only runs on SLES10 SP3. Sles10 SP3 however is unsupported since
a few weeks now, and just since then SLES10 (in SP4) has received
extremely critical security fixes.
