Shipped in Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 26052. https://www.tiraniddo.dev/2024/02/sudo-on-windows-quick-rundown.html claims it has a big security problem that makes the program accept calls to elevate from anywhere once first run

Edit:

  1. The security problem has been internally fixed and will be available in the next release
  2. It’s not just an alias for ‘runas’. It seems to be able to configurably block user input for sudo’d commands, retain the existing environment, ditch it and open a new window, and remember that you’ve sudo’d in the last minute or so.
  3. It brings up UAC instead of having you input the password

    It’s even worse because if you’ve found your way to MS answers you’re clearly desperate because nothing came up on a real site. So you’re already in a bad mood and then - BLAM - redirect!

      And then the answer is posted twice in a row from the the same expert and reads: “thank you for contacting Microsoft Answers. We are closing this thread as it’s reached the maximum age of -21479632”.

        I hate how every recommended answer is some copy paste guide on how to reset the PC. If that is your go to fix for everything you’re a garbage technician.
