Is it just me or does this seem more than a little strange?  

What kind of security certification can validate a networking
implementation (i.e. SMB) that passes around password "hashes" on the wire
that can easily be sniffed and reused?  Or does the C2 update "fix" this?

I guess I'll have to go dig up the C2 compliance specification from
somewhere.  I'll get back in my box now - I don't want to sully a nice,
decent, family-oriented OpenBSD list with too much talk of NT... 

Thanks for the info.
