You should discard this Cumulative Update and wait for CP4 before updating - a critical issue was found with this patch. See bug 8267360 on Metalink for details.

Basically - if you access the Discoverer login page for either Plus or Viewer with an URL parameter like &database=(TNS name) AND the user has exactly 8 characters in his password, you will get an ORA-01017 logon denied, even though the password is correct.

I have received confirmation, that this bug will be fixed with Cumulative Patch 4.
