8.2.1 Patch 2 "Webtier" installer - how it fits into an upgrade path

I am slightly confused about the large Patch 2 available for 8.2.1.  Is this patch specifically targeted at vulnerabilities in the WebTier portion of Authentication Manager Server?  Surely this isn't an installer for a WebTier instance - my understanding is that the installation package for a WebTier server is generated solely by the primary Authentication Manager server.  *Essentially, am I safe to assume that Patch 2 changes how the WebTier package is generated so that it includes the fix for the vulnerability in Oracle WebLogic?*

 

If that is the case, would we actually need to go from 8.1.1.14 > 8.2.0.0 > 8.2.1.0 > 8.2.1.2 > 8.2.1.3 ? 

 

Our implementation has the WebTier(s) running on Windows Server virtual instances. I have inherited the implementation and am planning the upgrade path. Please advise.
