Problem description

After a review by the SuSE Security Team the Samba Team reviewed also the client implementation and uncovered various bugs which have now been fixed. Since there is no easy workaround, an update is strongly recommended.
The first version for this problem didn't include all required files for the samba-client package.
This package includes the binaries for LDAP based authentication.
For the client package no further action has to be performed.
