Lenovo 720 FHD - Safe to update Bios?

Hello, I just bought the Lenovo 720 (FHD version - i7) and was wondering if it was now safe to update the BIOS since i have read a few posts on here saying that the latest bios was bricking them? Thanks.

 

**EDIT** This wasnt the one i saw originally but it looks like they pulled the offending one:

Thanks for the confirm, it looks like it was 2.07 that was causing issues - looks like they pulled it.
