I think you have to look post #25 by sem007
Agreed. I think sem007 has the right idea. However, he said he changed ownership of something from root to user "software", not that he changed permissions. If he executed su, even with suid permissions, if su is owned by a user other than root, he would probably have similar problems, i.e. suid files run with the permissions of the owner of the file rather than with the permissions of the user that executed the file. To correct the problem, he will have to login to terminal as root and run:

# chown root:root /bin/su

Hello kilgoretrout,

Agree with you. Might OP change ownership. As his/her first post bit complicated to understand.

@OP

you have to check two options

permission of /bin/su
owner/group of /bin/su
