The emergency user is only really useful for two things:
fixing messed up permissions, and creating manager
accounts. As we saw in Chapter 2, "Using Zope" you can log in
as the emergency user to create a manager account when none
exist. After you create a manager account you should log out
as the emergency user and log back in as the manager.

I guess I don't understand "emergency user." What prevents Joe Anonymous user from creating a Joe A.
Emergency user for himself, with which he makes a Joe A. E. Manager user for himself to hack the system?
