You should just install the Cumulative Updates, instead. CUs are primarily a collection of security hotfixes month-to-month for SharePoint 2013, now. I recommend CUs over individual hotfixes as there have been issues with hotfix dependencies causing things to break if you didn't apply the correct ones, or newer hotfixes depending on a previous hotfix, etc.

CUs are just easier to manage.

  • CUs only apply the files that require an update but it makes sure all files are up to date. – Trevor Seward Aug 17 at 15:43
  • Every month if install CUS is database sizes will go larger SharePoint_Config,Service App databases and Content dbs ? – user3520155 Aug 19 at 8:16
