We defined it as a "critical" update, because we do prefer that people
update to eliminate the chance of someone actually creating an exploit. In
that article it got changed around to "critical hole".

I believe the InfoWorld author has since updated their copy, although I
don't know if they syndicated out to ComputerWorld.

Summary: Yes, it's better to use the current version than a back version.
It's about 500K, downloads in a Flash.
