Hi Gunnar,
pulling the latest revision of the branch of your choice (6.0, 7.0 or
8.0 from will contain all the fixes mentioned in
these advisories if they affected your OpenERP/Odoo version, so you do
not have to patch.

If you want to patch separately, each advisory links to a commit that
patches that vulnerability only. So you only want to use the patches if
for some reason you maintain a fork that has since diverged from the
official Odoo repository and you do not usually merge from it.

As far as v8 is concerned there should be an automatic process merging
the 8.0 branch to OCB so they are usually patched on the day the commit
is pushed. Not sure about older versions.
