How important is it to update my iPhone to iOS 7.0.6

I see there's a new iOS version (7.0.6) available. Do I need to update my iPhone? What does this update fix?

Why iOS 7.0.6 Is A Way More Important Update Than You Think

"On February 21st, Apple released iOS 7.0.6, a small software update that provided “a fix for SSL connection verification.” The same SSL fix was also released for older iOS 6 devices and the Apple TV. Apple pushes out smaller bug fixes from time to time, so at first glance 7.0.6 seemed like a pretty normal update.

But in reality, Apple patched a major security flaw that has potentially compromised millions of peoples’ data for years. Nicknamed “gotofail,” the bug has been flying under the radar for quite some time."
