What did all of my clients suddenly detect the absence of Microsoft KB2728973, a 2012 patch?

Last night, all of my clients unexpectedly restarted after applying KB2728973. The thing is, I'm not sure why. When I link to an description of KB2728973 from Kace, I'm redirected to "KB3046310 - Microsoft Security Advisory: Fraudulent digital certificates could allow spoofing." Some more reading and I'm lead to believe this was the result of Microsoft revoking the certificate fraudulently issued for "live.fi". What I don't get is why KB2728973 was called to do the dirty work of revoking the certificate by Kace.

What gives?

I noticed this too. I haven't found an answer and basically came across the same info you have.

Mine installed last night and now Outlook isn't connecting to Exchange. I cannot see either 2728973 or 3046310 in the list of installed updates on the server. I'm trying to track it down now.
