No, this account provides a regular shell login, because it's in no way
restricted.  I have no idea why it's been done this way (now is almost
the first time I'm touching the Webextra VM) and I agree, it should get
disabled completely, the account as well as the additional host name.

 Unix _IS_ user friendly - it's just selective about who its friends are !
