    Sudo is actually more secure in this(mostly cause it can't use as many commands at the same time).
    You also need to setup sudo so the user is able to execute a certain command at all - but again, if you've got the root password, that shouldn' t be a problem. I bet his pw is not that difficult to crack.

    Anyway, the ancient Greeks called this behaviour 'hybris'. They also said the Gods would punish mortals for behaving that way But it ain't gonna be me. I simply don't have enough knowledge about that.
