How does the “Biased Nonce Sense” paper affect old clients?

Postby tomxcs » Wed Jan 16, 2019 10:45 am ... nse-paper/

How does this affect transactions signed with the old desktop and web clients (Ripple Wallet and Ripple Trade, pre-2015)? DId they never or only sometimes use deterministic nonces? Is there any reason to be especially concerned about random number generation with these clients?
