Cleartext protocols settings

Synopsis :

This script is used to configure Nessus settings.

Description :

This script just sets global variables (telnet/rexec/rsh logins and
passwords) that are used to perform host-level patch level checks.

You should avoid using these cleartext protocols when doing a scan,
as Nessus will basically broadcast the password to every tested host.
