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 against this problem included the wrong Samba version.
For the client package no further action has to be performed.
