Somebody else with the same problem: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-update/windows-7-update-appears-to-be-compromised/e96a0834-a9e9-4f03-a187-bef8ee62725e

For now this update should be avoided, Microsoft will most likely comment on it soon. I posted links to other websites where this question was asked in the post below.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/592139/windows-update-with-dubius-title-and-links-to-help-and-support/#entry3830713

For now, the safe thing to do would be to disable Automatic Updates and avoid installing this one. Someone on another website suggested to create a symlink of the SoftwareDistribution\Downloads folder to download the update and Reverse Engineer it. I might attempt to do that tonight if that update pops-out in my Windows 7 VM.

Update: This update isn't malicious, like many thoughts, a test update was pushed by mistake in production and Microsoft is working on calling it back.

http://www.zdnet.com/article/microsoft-accidentally-issued-a-test-windows-update-patch/

This being said, one person reportedly installed the update and said that it "screwed up" his system, so I still advice you to not install it, nor attempt to install it.

First windows update stops informing users about new updates if they set it to check and let you decide, now it pushes out a wrong update. I think we will see MS purposely make Windows 7 worse over time while offering the solution of upgrading to Windows 10...

Like I said in the other thread, I still have that notification on my Windows 7 VMs and they are fully updated. Same for every single computers at my workplace (although the updates are delivered via SCCM).

I feel silly talking about this in 2 or 3 different threads, but why would you be getting notifications about new updates available if your system is fully updated? EDIT: lol ok scratch this re: what you just posted in the other thread :P

Microsoft lets a test update through and though it was for Windows 7 Windows 10 automatic updates cannot be turned off. Does anybody see a problem here?
