Is ASUS updating BIOS of Intel motherboards to prevent the new "snoop" attack?

Hi ASUS, I was made aware of the new security threat of Intel CPUs from the "snoop" attack. Microsoft has made a patch for this new threat. Apparently mothboard manufacturers are also working on a BIOS update to circumvent this newly discovered threat. Could anyone from ASUS please comment on where we stand as customers of their motherboards, stand in regards to a BIOS update to patch this threat? TIA

This is a member self help forum. Very seldom do you see ASUS employees posting here.*
My advise with the intel threats?
Disable all the patches and get yourself a decent hardware firewall an stay off of public networks. If you do use your machine as in laptop use your phone wifi. They must first be inside your network to attack anything. I have all the patches disabled or not installed due to performance hits but stay behind another layer of protection.*

Discovered threats belongs to intel processors. That means hardware issues. Disabiling of windows firewall not use. Intel should give respective microcode to all OEM , then OEM should those microcodes to laptop or motherboard based processor. And supply via download center..

My Bios updated by itself from 3.3 to 3.5. I don't know when or how. I know it did, i checked recently due to some crashes my pc is having without creating error logs.
