In the new edition of Power Up, Heat Vision states: "Monsters that wound you with their claw lose 1 star. The old version stated " Monsters you attack lose 1 star". Thematically, the old version effect makes more sense, but the way it is stated in the new version means it certainly is not simply a typo.

Can anybody confirm the correct effect for Heat Vision?

I'd say play however it is written in the set you are using.

Neither version seems strictly better than the other. Presumably they wanted a quick way to rebalance Gigazaur from 'attack' to a little more 'defense'.

Hello,

The first edition had multiple versions of the card (depending of the language) because of an error. Now there's only one version of this card, so I would recommand that you use the new text if you have the new version of Power-Up.
If you play with the old version, you can play with the new or old text, both are balanced and fine powers.
