As the SUSE Samba binaries are not linked against libcap, we are not
affected in any shipping products.  Therefore no action is required from
SUSE users.

Nevertheless https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7222
CVE-2010-0728 and https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=586683 are
noted in the package change log as reference to this security issue.

3.5.1 got already merged into the current openSUSE development tree

Binaries of current Samba version are available from the openSUSE Build
Service by the network:samba:STABLE repository.  More information about
this service, Samba and SUSE is available from
