Refer to above.  

Q1:
Besides tablets & phones running Windows OS, are PCs/laptops affected?
Attachment 1 says PCs/Laptops are affected : is this article true?

Q2:
I suppose in our corporate which has a few thousand PCs/laptops which we
disallow users from getting into the BIOS (I suppose this is called 'locked-down
secure boot'  PCs/laptops, then what's the mitigation?  Not feasible to get the
thousands of PCs/laptops to our corporate end-user computing team (which
number about 15 only) to go into the BIOS to switch off "Secure Boot".
We have about 30 physical locations/offices

Q3:
Any idea if MS has released a patch for it or any workaround for this?  Is
this only for certain flavors & versions of Windows ?  Do list them
