Did NOT install.  After my MSE definitions updated, I repeated Windows Update.  The above 'important' update did not reappear???

Did MS servers get compromised?

Thank you

Same here. Hopefully if enough people post about this, we'll get a response from Microsoft. Haven't installed, but in my case (unlike in the OP's), it reappears every time I check for new updates.

I got several errors when I was first trying to run Windows Update right before getting this--for about 10 min I couldn't access updates at all. No idea if it's related.

I have the same issue too; you would think Microsoft would notice this with 277+ views.... Something is odd about this update.

I got the same one too.  It's a little weird that it's redirecting to an oddball .gov and .mil website.  Pretty fishy if you ask me...

This just happened to me on a fresh install of windows 7 enterprise. Last night I finished installing all windows updates. This morning I had this come up. Once you rescan the updater, it disappears.

It hasn't hit the WSUS server at my work yet so unfortunately I can't confirm the date you're seeing.  I am seeing it on my home workstation though. 

EDIT -> I synchronized my WSUS server and it's not appearing.

We had the update repeatedly show up as available and repeatedly it failed (never blindly accept updates :-( )

However seems to have gone, but we NEED to know what it was. Has the laptop been compromised?

Just a short answer will do.

my laptop was screwed after the update. windows explorer crashes 

VERY frequently now and most of my programs stopped working even in admin mode.
system restore didn't work and i don't have the information i need for a reinstall.
basically whatever it was killed my system and compromised my gear so i wouldn't want to look up anything sensitive to personal data on your machine.  also i noticed the update cant be deleted or hidden or detected after a failed install. even though you can clearly see it listed as a failed update... this is bad.

sorry if this isn't what you wanted to hear. maybe it effects things differently depending on location and computing capabilities.  hope for the best and try to restore.
