V3.0 (August 27, 2014): Bulletin rereleased to announce the replacement of the 2982791 update with the 2993651 update for all supported releases of Microsoft Windows. See the Update FAQ for details.
 
Why was this bulletin revised on August 27, 2014? What happened to the original 2982791 security update? 
To address known issues with security update 2982791, Microsoft rereleased MS14-045 to replace the 2982791 update with the 2993651 update for all supported releases of Microsoft Windows. Microsoft expired update 2982791 on August 15, 2014. All customers should apply the 2993651 update, which replaces the expired 2982791 update. Microsoft strongly recommends that customers who have not uninstalled the 2982791 update do so prior to applying the 2993651 update.
I already successfully installed the original 2982791 security update and am not experiencing any difficulties.
 
Should I apply the replacement update (2993651) released on August 27, 2014?
Yes. All customers should apply the 2993651 update, which replaces the expired 2982791 update. Customers do not need to uninstall the expired 2982791 update before applying the 2993651 update; however, Microsoft strongly recommends it. Customers who do not remove the expired update will retain a listing for 2982791 under installed updates in Control Panel.
 
I uninstalled the original 2982791 security update. Should I apply the August 27, 2014 rereleased update (2993651)?
Yes. To be protected from CVE-2014-0318 and CVE-2014-1819, all customers should apply the rereleased update (2993651), which replaces the expired 2982791 update.
