They didn't, the problem was created by an outdated file located on the Microsoft Update servers.

 

When the Windows Update Client on your computer tries to update, first it check if there is a new version of the client on the server and during that check it downloads a file that didn't pass the validation check because of the expired date.

It takes place when the Windows Update Client check for updates. Usually if Windows is set to install Updates automatically it will check for new updates some time after the system start.
