NAME         top

       nologin - prevent unprivileged users from logging into the system

DESCRIPTION         top

       If the file /etc/nologin exists and is readable, login(1) will
       allow access only to root.  Other users will be shown the
       contents of this file and their logins will be refused.  This
       provides a simple way of temporarily disabling all unprivileged
       logins.
