Way OT here, but there is a huge
difference between using ssh
and using ssh
as a normal user who has sudo
While the differences are too numerous to mention, it is important to remember root is all-powerful. Period. No questions asked.
sudo is highly configurable as to which user/group can do what. You can fine-tune which user can do X, which group can do Y, etc.
I'll take 1,000 users with sudo privileges over 1,000 users logging in as root any day. At a minimum, I can look at the logs and see who did what, as opposed to thousands of entries showing root logging in, and then one entry where root rm -rf /.
If things get any worse, I'll have to ask you to stop helping me.
