Skype security flaw- better update now

Skype logoZDNet is reporting of a security flaw in Skype that allows attackers to construct a Skype hyperlink that when clicked sends a file to the Skype user’s computer.  Skype published a security alert late last week and have released an updated version of the popular Internet telephone program.  They are recommending all Skype users update to version 2.5.0.82 to plug this security hole.  If I’m not mistaken, isn’t this a beta version?
