I've been getting this warning in PSI for some time - as "insecure, no solution". Above it says there is a solution, which is to "update to version 126.96.36.199.55".
I'm using the latest Skype - 188.8.131.52. Why am I getting a warning ?

There is no Skype Version "184.108.40.206.55".
There is a version "220.127.116.11" and im using even "18.104.22.168" which is the current version at 2010-05-11, and this advisory is still shown for it.
So Secunia PSI is wrong here.
