user cron jobs

The new user cron jobs are a great new feature but I was just wondering what is allowed to go in the "Command:" input box. Is this any command.
e.g php somefile.php
du -h

If so, what is preventing someone just entering /sbin/shutdown?

This can be any command.

Make sure that /sbin/shutdown can be executed only by root!

Thanks falko. So any command can be run but its based on the user privileges.

So what privileges does ispconfig setup each user to have by default? How can I check this?

ISPConfig does not setup any user priveliges, the users are normal system users and the priveliges are setup by the linux distribution that you use.
