Over at Computerworld, Michael Horowitz has sliced and diced the update <Expirydate> problem.
Interesting info, particularly that he got the wuauclt.exe /detectnow command to break the logjam.
If you have an XP or Server 2003 system – or you know someone who does – and they aren’t getting updates, make sure they understand that they aren’t alone. It’s Microsoft’s doing again. Still no official confirmation, still no idea when/if it’ll get fixed.

This just in from ER…
Adobe has posted a new set of Flash Player security updates mentioned in security bulletin APSB14-26:
This feels like a re-release of the November 2014 Flash Player security updates first mentioned in security bulletin APSB14-24:

Looks like it’s an internal date error – but MS hasn’t said a thing. Argh.

What if it’s a hardware problem (which seems quite likely at this point)?

WinShock? Kerberos? Emergency patches?
If you have a server, you should be mildly concerned. If you’re a regular, ol’ Windows user, there’s nothing to get too excited about. And if you read that WinShock is the next Heartbleed, pound the author over the head. It ain’t so.
There’s so much mis-information floating around these days that it’s hard to keep your head while those around you are losing theirs.
If you don’t have a web server, you’re fine. Stick to MS-DEFCON 2, turn off Automatic Update, and wait for the other shoes to drop.
