It's looks like that for some reason the date is not displayed or written correctly which can indicate that the updates are corrupted.

Try to un-install all 3 the security updates and let windows install them again. Maybe this will solve the problem.

Need 7zip installed; if you don't have it.
We are going to open up some exe msp and cab files.

Right-click the NDP40-KB2468871-v2-x86.exe file
Hover over 7zip then open the archive.
Double-click the NDP40-KB2468871.msp file.
Double-click the file.
Right-click the System.Xml.Serialization.dll.x86 file and select Copy To...
Copy it to C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\

Now we have to rename the file:
Click Start --> Run  and paste the following:
Find the System.Xml.Serialization.dll.x86
Rename it to System.Xml.Serialization.dll   (remove .x86)

Exit out of 7zip

Rerun the NDP40-KB2468871-v2-x86.exe patch.

It should work.
