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

    Sudo already exists, is it okay to just name a different program by the same name?

    Guess which one Bing search will try harder to return.

      I hate searching for sway config stuff using DDG (which returns Bing results).

      Chances are never zero that that there is an outdated MS product with the same name of what you’re searching.

        Hold up. DDG returns Bing results? TIL. Is that true? How do we know? Do they state this, themselves?

            Wow okay. It’s not their only source, which I came to believe. That’s good, then. Thank you for the link and quote!

      They are already doing it for other commands. Eg curl.
