Esxi security patches

Have a single esxi host , do not have vCentrer, VUM.
Never been applied security patches.
I went into patch download for esxi "embedded and install" and found 13 security patches (VIB) to be applied to this esxi host
Do i have to apply these one at a time, that is, 13 times and reboot?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You only need to Apply the latest patch, patches are cumulative.

Please see my EE Article, step by step tutorial with instructions

HOW TO: Upgrade from VMware vSphere Hypervisor ESXi 5.1 to VMware vSphere Hypervisor ESXi 5.5 for FREE

the commands to use are the same for 5.0

This is very useful link, I went into download security patch, it is a zip file.
It is listing three or four files when I do below command
# esxcli software sources profile list -d /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/VMware-ESXi-5.5.0-1331820-depot.zip

What is the reason we have to use ?
-p ESXi-5.5.0-1331820-standard not the other.

different profiles, different options. usually with and without VMware Tools, e.g. install the update but no VMware Tools.

Thank you for link, I still have a question about the profiles, hope you will explain that.
The  download VIB has four profiles when i list with below comand .
esxcli software sources profile list -d /vmfs/volumes/5421de7d-1049884c-e04100188b3cecd2/iso/update-from-esxi6.0-6.0_update01.zip
like, no-tool, s-no-tools, s-standard and standard. I want to apply security and standard, forget about tools.
 If I run update on s-standard, Does that update security and standard or just security?
Andrew Hancock (VMware vExpert / EE MVE^2)VMware and Virtualization ConsultantCommented:
If you apply s-, these just apply security fixes only.

you can always refer to the KB as to what is included in each profile here
