Not a bug. We can file this one alongside "console user has access to keyboard". Where did I out that CVE?

Five seconds of Googling informed me that systemd-inhibit can be used to prevent shutdown. If you are absolutely sure that you want to wreck the well-thought-out privileges for console users, craft a polkit rule. If you only want to avoid accidents, install molly-guard.

Kind regards,
