Misconfiguration of sudo is insecure (Was: Sudo even more secure)

Hello,

That's very interesting. So we should not execute user's bashrc both  
with sudo or gksudo or at least with gksudo. I think the most  
important feature of sudo is : allow multiple user to have access  
privileges without sharing a password.

Why do sudo execute .bashrc ? Why does it not just import global  
variable ?

Étienne.
