$ man passwd
~From the man page:
User accounts may be locked and unlocked with the -l and -u args.
The -l option disables an account by changing the password to a value
which matches no possible encrypted value. The -u option re-enables an
account by changing the password back to its previous value.
And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it
together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
