Sudoers allows a local administrator to give certain LUAs (Least-Privileged User Account) the ability to run some (or all) applications as system administrator. Unlike Runas or any other similar products, Sudoers does not execute applications in the context of another administrator account. The user (LUA) currently logged-on to the computer can launch applications using Sudoers as if he were system administrator.
The benefit of using this product is that if the application is launched by currently logged-on user (via Sudoers), it will gain access to the currently logged-on user's profile and registry, thus saving user's settings in the correct place. The minor revision (1.0.6) of Sudoers addresses important security issues. With previous version (1.0.5) of Sudoers, the LUA (Least-Privileged User Account) can gain the system privilege through Common DialogBox during Browse operation in Sudo your program menu. The new version (1.0.6) corrects this problem.
