I have a VM running Kali Linux 2021.3. I have only 2 users
kali user possesses sudo permissions with a password. When I run a command without sudo permission, it executes fine. But when I execute the same command with sudo permissions, it takes at least more than 20 seconds to prompt me for the password
But when I switch the user to root with
su root and run commands, this doesn't happen. Additionally, programs like python and PHP take longer than usual to get executed.
For example, to start a simple HTTP server with python:
python3 -m http.server 8080 also takes more than 20 seconds.
I thought this was a problem with low RAM. So I tried increasing the RAM by 2GB. It still doesn't work. I did an upgrade with APT recently. I wonder if that's what caused this issue. My current version is,
Linux kali 5.10.0-kali7-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.28-1kali1 (2021-04-12) x86_64 GNU/Linux
This is the output of the auth.log when I execute the command with sudo
tail -f /var/log/auth.log
