Description mvanderkruk 1999-05-10 13:53:14 EDT
The /usr/bin/shutdown has a BIG BUG
anyone can shutdown a the computer using his OWN password!!!
this can be disabled by removing all the filepermissions
for other users on the file /usr/local/consolehelper

but this is NOT a bugfix, it is only temporarily!!!
