[Nut-upsuser] upsdevctl is -rwxr-xr-x

I've installed the debian package of these
ups tools and everything looks good.
debian:/var/log# upsdrvctl -h
Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.0.1
(Though I'll have to wait for a quieter time to pull
the plug and test it.)
debian:/var/log# ls -l `which upsdrvctl`
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 18232 Sep 22 2005 /sbin/upsdrvctl
I notice that upsdrvctl is exectuable by anyone.
Does that mean that anyone with shell access
to the server can "upsdrvctl shutdown" ?
I'd prefer to restrict execution of that utility
to root. Would that cause any problems?
