Well this may not be a big news as the damage glitch and the credit glitch but this don't mean it don't need to be fix by Massive.
Redditor Jarryc has tested and proven that "Protection from Elites" does not give you protection on Elite units at all. Instead, it increases the damage you received from Elite units!
On his experiment, he used a set gear (Striker's Harness) with 11% Protection from elites to do the test. He then weent to the Lincoln Tunnel Checkpoint and took a shot from a sniper. Went back to BoO to recalibrate the gear and replaced 11% PFE with 10% Health on Kill. And lastly, he ran back to Lincoln Tunnel, took a shot and compared two.
The results are pretty convincing that it does increase the damage you received from Elites and you can see the images below for proofs:
Here is the picture of the gear and recalibration:
