    Many of the other vendors have rolled out updates now. No comms from ASUS on this issue since early January.

    I'm still waiting for H170 and Zenbook.

    Updated BIOS with the fixed microcode has finally been released for my H170.

    However, the BIOS for my Z170 Maximus is still the one from January which is known to cause problems with Kaby Lake CPUs.

    A new BIOS for my Z170 Maximus has finally been released (Version 3801 2018/04/26). I guess this includes the fixed microcode for Kaby Lake CPUs.

    And now with the new Spectre NG vulnerabilities we are back to square one. Months of waiting again for new microcode from Intel and BIOS releases from Asus.

    If you are waiting for a CPU or OS with no vulnerabilities you will be waiting for a very, very long time. Patching security vulnerabilities for components and OS's will never end as long as nefarious actors have the will to be creative.
