With Exchange 2013 they only have CU "cumulative Updates". These packages are complete install files. This installs directly over the current one.

This will stop core Exchange services and will also require a reboot (well you should at least).

The modifications it may have are Schema updates depending on the CU you are applying.

So something like that should be done off business hours and expect an outage or disruption.

but safe to go over my current version?

The build version you have is CU4 PS1. CU are cumulative so you can in fact go directly to the latest one. However I have not jumped from CU4 to CU10 so i cannot not any issues. If you have any concerns you could just do a double hop CU4 to CU7 and then to CU10.

I personally wouldn't but if you have any concerns you can take that approach. SP1 is no longer supported so moving to a more recent CU would be recommened at this point.
