MacBook Pro Flash Storage Firmware Update 1.0

Apple has issued MacBook Pro Flash Storage Firmware Update 1.0 for the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display released in May 2015 (see “Apple Releases Updated MacBook Pro, iMac, and iPhone Dock,” 19 May 2015). The update fixes a vulnerability with the MacBook Pro’s internal SSD firmware that could cause data corruption in rare cases. As with other firmware updates, it’s best to rely on Software Update to ensure you get the right update for your specific model. Also, take care not to interrupt the update process.

I'm going to update my early 2011 MBP 15inch with an SSD.
1. Will I need this update?
and
2. Will my updater sort it out?

This affects the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display released in May 2015. Your updater will sort it out.
