The SSL vulnerability in the previous version allowed a hacker to modify or capture the data in so called secure sessions. This hacking was possible only when the user was connected to an insecure wi-fi network.

By the way, the users can download the update by using Wi-Fi connectivity (recommended). Kindly back up your iOS device`s data to iCloud or iTunes before doing any update.  While the fix for Apple iPhone 3GS and Apple iPod touch devices will get iOS 6.1.6 update.
