I was trying to update my BIOS Version to 1.27 to get the update for the CVE-2017-5715 vulnerability.
Unfortunately the update is only available as an ISO Bootable file.
I have no external CD/DVD Drive for my Thinkpad and openening the ISO file shows no content.
So my question is: when will this update be available as a download or available via Lenovo System Update?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi cnschindler, Not sure why the 1.27 BIOS update utility is not listed on the support page. The files are on the download site:
Hope this helps!
Edit: Removed links because the 1.27 BIOS update is now withdrawn. See https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/len-18282.

Is this one of the BIOS revisions that has now been recalled due to the Intel microcode fiasco?
I notice that now NEITHER the executable nor the ISO for 1.27 for x1 carbon 5th (20HR) is showing on the support website, however the links you provide still work.
If this is the reason 1.27 is gone, probably should edit message and kill those links.
