besides that "We don't care about security at the office" is not very 
smart at all (you will regret it when the first client with a crypto 
malware starts to encrypt your shares and you don#t have a clue which of 
the 40 machines is infected) you need to describe "little bit of weirdness"


> In other words, we have about 40 machines all connected to our shares with the same user "smb". Is there a problem with this?

normally not because it's pretty normal that a user has more than one
