sudo -i and su

Post by 1885 » 2015/04/15 11:37:40

Some members in my group are removing su from their server configurations.
They indicate there is a bug having su available on a public system.
My experience has always been to keep su and limit who can use it and limit sudo users.

I would value any opinions on this mater with direct reference to Centos.

Thanks,
cwc

I'd tend to suspect the real problem is the root password and WHO has it.Or are you inferring they're removing the root account itself? That being the case I wonder what will happen when something breaks or they change their mind about a certain configuration.

no basis - just 'my 2 cents' (or whatever international denomination).
The more I learn the 'behinder' I get.
