Still waiting for fixes to the Intel ME security vulnerability for my Lenovo laptops

I own 2 Lenovo laptops. An ideapad y700 (still under warranty) and a flex 3 (just out of warranty). Both are in need of bios patches to address the Intel ME vulnerability, and yet nothing posted with respect to these models. Any Lenovo computer over a year old has been ignored so far. This is unacceptable Lenovo, would you please do what is right and provide us some answers?

Am I the only owner of these laptops that is concerned with this?

Same here. CHecking the Y700 download page almost daily. I hope Lenovo doesn't think this is not necessary just because this is not considered a "business line" laptop.

If yours is still under warranty, issue a trouble ticket and have it escalated. They will offer you to ship your laptop to perform the update. I found this out. I needed the laptop, so I decided to keep it after the support rep said they had a fix, just no ETA on whether they would "release" it... Very Bizarre.

My warranty expired in August. Having the fix and not releasing a bios update would be very stupid.

Well that is currently what is happening, apparently.

I just checked the advisory this morning and the Y700-15sk and Flex3-1580 are now listed, with status as TBD... I guess this means you should stay tuned.
