Hi LUGers,

I have a question about sudo log.

In my workplace, users need to sudo to a user named "super" to escalate 
their privilege.  When I browsed the /var/log/secure, I found some 
entries like this below:

...:sudo:super: .... : USER=super: .....: /sbin/rm -rf /abc/efg: ......

I can't figure out in what circumstances that an account like "super" 
sudo to itself.  Any help would be appreciated.
