1. Refer to ... k-4-6.aspx:
Update 8/11/2015: We released an updated version of RyuJIT today, which resolves this advisory. The update was released as Microsoft Security Bulletin MS15-092 and is available on Windows Update or via direct download as KB3086251.
The dotConnect for Oracle versions released before 8.5 should work with this patch.
8.5 and higher work with the patch and without it.

2. By Microsoft design, current .NET Framework upgrades are in-place ( ... -5-works-i).
Software vendors cannot be sure that particular .NET Framework feature will behave exactly in the same way after each in-place upgrade. So a general advice would be: either upgrade both .NET Framework and dotConnect for Oracle, or leave compatible versions (.NET and provider) on a particular workstation. Please contact Microsoft support to find out more information about Windows Update settings.

Seems like this is fixed in .NET 4.6.1.

It also seems that Microsoft will skip the .NET 4.6 from Windows Update and directly go to 4.6.1.
