Security update to ypbind and ypclient

Author: JT Smith

LWN.net has the advisory: Security problems have been found in the client code of the NIS
(Network Information System, aka yp - yellow pages) subsytem.
SuSE distributions before SuSE-6.1 came with the original ypbind
program, SuSE-6.2 and later included the ypbind-mt NIS client
implementation.
