comment Standards accounts are able to get root access using sudo without password request
Because that's exactly what that line says? ALL is the keyword here. The line starting with %admin says that all members of group admin have sudo rights, and this line says that everyone has it.

You misunderstood me: I meant edit the question. I'll add this for you, but please review it (the question) and add whatever you think might clear things up the best.

That's great. If you can, add the reasons or some more explanation to your question: it will be better for future googlers. Also, if this works, consider accepting it as a valid answer (use the checkmark) and/or give it an upvote.

Be aware that editing this line is NOT applicable for regular users. You would do that for the users like www-data that should never be used to log in.

comment shutdown 0 always remains in single-user mode
I'm not sure what the default action/runlevel is for shutdown. Could you try shutdown -h 0 ?

comment Does the freequent use of CAT command badly affect the hard disk performance?
Sorry, but the point is still valid: cat has nothing much to do with it, it is more the concept that needs checking. As it is dependent on the users hardware you should do field testing with your type of files (kb/s would matter, harddiskwrite and read speed, etc). If the system is swapping you'd get a LOT of performance loss if you keep writing as well.
