If you have the vcenter appliance, it can pull it from the repos automatically. If you have the Windows version of vcenter, I think they published the offline patch.

Any esxi patches can be found via Update Manager.

this is your download here

Removing a bundle is possible, but an entire patch is very messy.

If you really want to have a rollback, backup your ESXi installation before application.
