    Debian Bug     : 374609
    
    Hendrik Weimer discovered that it is possible for a normal user to
    disable the login shell of the root account via usermin, a web-based
    administration tool.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.110-3.1.
    
    In the upstream distribution this problem is fixed in version 1.220.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your usermin package.
