Included in this Patch Tuesday is a Forefront update KB2508823 (Client Version: 1.5.1996.0).
We have received a number of reports that the KB2508823 update fails during the install. Once the update fails, the existing Forefront client is also removed. This leaves the machine without any anti-malware protection.
We recommend you hold off deploying the update until confirmation from Microsoft.
Microsoft have posted a similar warning here:

The Pwn2Own contest by HP Tipping Point held at CanSecWest each year has a new sponsor this year. Google.
Google has offered up a bounty for breaking into Google Chrome. As a seemingly direct defensive measure to prevent a big pay out, Google has published updates the day before the competition kicks off that fix numerous problems.
Yesterday, Google published 23 updates for the Chrome browser. 15 of them were rated high by Google. So get those browers patched!
The nice part is Credit and Cash go to the individuals that report and assist with patch development.
