A virus kind might spread: bios virus and at this time no antivirus can protect against it even if it is detected. More information there and there.

Yeah I read about that the other days. Scary.

I guess the only way to eradicate it is to update the BIOS?

Yes but as it infect mbr and OS from mbr. The right process would be remove any hard drive, flash from CD or any R/O media the bios then connect the hard drive and clean it from the CD to avoid reinfection.
