Shipped in Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 26052. claims it has a big security problem that makes the program accept calls to elevate from anywhere once first run


  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

    Sure, tell my corporate overlords to do that, on thousands of computers across the globe.

    At home i can do what I want, at work I have to bow down.
