Be advised that the security in all levels below NTLMv2 is so bad
that devices no more powerful than a cell phone can crack passwords
sniffed over wireless in approx 3 minutes... potentially even
quicker. Much quicker from a common laptop. LM hashes are
considered to be about as secure as plain text nowadays. I would
highly recommend against setting this to anything other than "Use
NTLMv2 response only /refuse NT and LM". Note that you have match up
all workstations, servers, and domain controllers or else use the
negotiation based intermediate steps.
Unfortunately Microsoft (in their amazing wisdom) enabled everything
past NT4 sp3 or so but didn't make it default behavior to negotiate
down automatically, starting with the most secure authentication mode..
