we use BladeLogic for our Windows Server Patch Deployment and we are currently facing at least 2 issues with the detection logic from Shavlik:
These issues are:
1. MS15-082 showing up as missing but getting not applicable error
The Patch that is reported as missing has the following Details:

[C:\Windows\system32\AACLIENT.DLL 6.1.7601.18918 < 6.2.9200.21545]
However, when we try to deploy it, Windows reports "The Patch is not applicable"
2. MS15-029 showing up as missing but getting already installed
There is a V2 Version of KB3035126 which Shavlik reports as beeing installed. However the "original" Version Shows up as missing, but it can't be deployed as Windows says: "Patch is already installed"
The missing patch Details are:

I know i would have to open a case with BMC, but i thought i post it here as well.
Maybe you guys are already aware of this and a fixed XML is already in the making.
I don't see any recent updates to these patches, I see an update to MS15-082 a month ago and MS15-029 was last changed in May. You should definitely open a case with BMC. You could save time by collecting a DPDTrace against one of the machines with the issue and supply it to BMC. Please include the registry exports request at the bottom of the page.
