MS has tested this in their Dog food environment and suggest to test this in Lab before implementing in production even if you uninstall the earlier released patch you still need to follow the MS KB2879739 as it deals with the way search infrastructure is installed during the Cumulative Update and they are planning to resolve this with the next CU3 release.

Below is the link to the script created by MVP Michel de Rooij which automatically performs the fix by executing it right after installing the  MS13-061 security update provided in the above article stated by MS (KB2879739)
