On Monday, version 188.8.131.525 of Skype went public. The new version, a 20.2 megabyte download, resolves a security issue that could allow hackers to gain control of a Mac via a maliciously crafted Skype message. The vulnerability made headlines last week when a security researcher publicized the issue. In response, Skype promised that an update would come early this week.
Skype 184.108.40.2065 requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later to install and run.
