suDown Publisher's description

"suDown" is a play on words: it is the abbreviation of the terms "switch user down".
"suDown" is a play on words: it is the abbreviation of the terms "switch user down". Basically it transforms your
original Administrator account to a Sudoer account which is still an administrative account but runs in a low privileged
environment. This approach provides you with extra security against malware and other unwanted programs during
everyday work and also gives you easy access to higher privileges anytime you need them.
Transforming your user account into a Sudoer account is as easy as placing it to the so-called "sudoers" localgroup
and suDown takes care of the rest. Privilege elevation in the low privileged environment can be evoked through the
"sudo" program which is available from the command line and with the right-click context menu. The "sudo" command
authenticates you with the password of your user account and executes the given application in the context of your user
but with administrative permissions. It also caches your password for 5 minutes so running multiple applications with
high privilege is comfortable enough.
