It is a Microsoft Explorer Patch KB2494427

You can deploy it with WSUS but I think you would also need a program like WPP to package it into the WSUS db.

You could also use PDQ Deploy. You would download the update on the pc/server that has PDQ Deploy. You can then use PDQ to select the computers you wish to push it to and send it.

WPP is usually installed on the same server as WSUS. It integrates with WSUS and allows you to deploy your own customer updates.

thanks to all, now it works with PDQ.
WPP is just for 3rd party tools.
