Power Of Sudo | Linux

Funny enough Linux gives you enough power to kill yourself, it’s one of the Best OS (Open Source) OS (Operating System).

One of your greatest and most powerful weapon in a Linux OS is, Terminal

What is Terminal in Linux?
A terminal emulator is a program that allows the use of the terminal in a graphical environment. As most people use an OS with a graphical user interface (GUI) for their day-to-day computer needs, the use of a terminal emulator is a necessity for most Linux server users.

In your Terminal Exist a Code “Sudo su”

What is meant by “Sudo su”?
The sudo command stands for “superuser do”. It prompts you for your personal password and confirms your request to execute a command by checking a file, called sudoers , which the system administrator configures.

What is the “su” Command?
The Unix command su, sometimes described as substitute user, super user, or switch user, is used by a computer user to execute commands with the privileges of another user account. When executed it invokes a shell without changing the current working directory or the user environment.

Using su creates security hazards, is potentially dangerous, and requires more administrative maintenance. It’s not good practice to have numerous people knowing and using the root password because when logged in as root, you can do anything to the system. This could provide too much power for inexperienced users, who could unintentionally damage the system. Additionally, each time a user should no longer use the root account (e.g., an employee leaves), the system administrator will have to change the root password.

“With great power comes great responsibility.” — Sudo Su
