Hello From the Readme: # Runas is a program that allows the super-user to run a program as if # an ordinary user ran it. There are two main uses for runas, and both relate # to security. # # One is to allow the super-user to execute a binary given by an # un-trusted user. Suppose the program is /usr/smith/program. The super-user # simply creates a dummy account, say one called 'nobody' which doesn't have # sufficient privileges to do any harm (the account needn't have login # capability). The super-user can then do: # # 'runas nobody /usr/smith/program' Grisu -- Michael Bramer - a Debian Certified Linux Developer http://www.debian.org PGP: finger email@example.com -- Linux Sysadmin -- Use Debian Linux "The Box said 'Windows NT or better', so I installed Debian Linux"
