Smile How do I use sudo for my LPA's in a secure manner


My sister was working on the computer once and I thought "She souldn't be on as root!"

How do you use a secure, but flexible way to run sudo.

  1. Give her her own user and don't give her access to sudo.
  2. Don't use NOPASSWD: in sudoers.
