Against a backdrop of increasing concern for Microsoft's patching ways, the re-appearance of KB 3035583 does not inspire confidence

Just like every time I've seen it before I'll be rejecting it into the "hidden" list, and never letting my updates go full auto therefore giving me the chance to check for nasty ones like these before they can install. Note that 8.0 users do not get bugged with this, only 8.1 and 7 users are affected.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

Yea, I was surprised because I thought I hid that update already and then it pops up again like a bad weed. I too set my updates to only notify then I wait a week or so because lately Microsoft has put out some bad patches. Wonder what is going to happen with Windows 10 where Microsoft says they will be doing rapid updates using peer to peer? I see a whole lot of not good.

It has happened recently that hidden updates do re-appear. It happens for this one (and some associtaed ones) on windows 8.1, it happens for KB2871389 (and some which follow it) on windows 8.0. Keep updates on "notify only" (named "Check automatically but let me choose whether to download and install them" in "windows updates" in "control panel") and you should be safe from things like this, just make sure to check if nasty updates are bundled as part of monthly "update rollout" packages or included by default with other updates.
