Is this meant to be in response to the questions about 'update
encrypted'? If so, then this should not impact you.
But do those clients really require plaintext, or just lanman passwords?
Also, given how weak plaintext authentication is, would a long-term
alternative for your operation be to simply allowing guest access?
