Skype has a Security Hot Fix

Skype has released a new security hot fix to fix the cross-zone scripting vulnerability that led to closing access to the Metacafe and Dailymotion video sources for sharing via Skype Chat windows and mood message feature.

Also, the official Skype Blog says that the newly released update(version ) has also fixed one major issue that I - as well as some of my reader's had reported "Frequent Skype Crashes". Issues such as the inability to answer a second call and to start video when plugging in a webcam during a call have also been resolved it seems.

You can use the Help > Check for Updates menu in Skype to check for the new update and install the same. So go ahead and update your Skype with this 22MB update as you read this article.
