Changes to SMB Null Session Detection

Before this release, having Null sessions was considered a default credential, since it could be said that a Null session is a session established with an empty credential set. 

After this release, the Default Credentials finding will no longer be triggered for SMB Null sessions. SMB Null sessions will now be reported on ID 217926.

Default Credentials findings with "empty credentials" on SMB will be moved. If "empty credentials" were the only found default credentials, the finding will stop triggering completely on that target. 

The new finding is backed by a check which asserts that the Null session can in fact be used to access resources, unlike the previous check, which only asserted that a session was established.
