I keep hearing "bang account" at my company and, through context, figured it out to mean an account with elevated privileges.
I believe this is particularly the case with Active Directory accounts, but I can find very, very few mentions of "bang account", "bang-account" or variations of that term on the internet.
My only context for "bang" is the beginning of shell scripts "hash bang bin bash" for example:
#!/bin/bash. I suppose in some ways
! could be shorthand for an "elevated" account.
Could anyone tell me if I'm right, where it comes from (surely it has some etymological meaning), and if it is actually scoped to just AD?
