The local console user can always do that. He can also switch of the system via the power button or pull the power cable.
Comment 2 Lennart Poettering 2013-09-12 15:35:02 EDT
This is not a bug, it's a feature, and users have been able to shutdown the system via GNOME's menu since ages. If you don't like this, please reconfigure PolicyKit to deny local users to shutdown the machine.
