Well, the openssh version is the same, it is just a new bugfix release and 
well between 4.3p2-24 and 4.3p2-36 two security bugs have been fixed as well. 
So you should encourage them to update to the latest bugfix release.

The question is if we are able to work around this bug from the client. You 
should try to convince your customers to update the openssh package.
