10.4: Create a 'Run As' contextual menu command
Authored by: dc_rees on Aug 29, '05 01:22:37AM

Just a voice of caution --

If someone has successfully installed a keylogger on the account you are using sudo or pseudo from, they will very likely capture any passwords you use from that account.

(In case anyone is curious, yeah, I'm paranoid enough I don't use a web browser from an administrator account.)

The real advantage of sudo is for reducing privileges, not raising them.
