New "Skeleton Key" Malware Allows Bypassing of Passwords

Dell’s security group has discovered new malware which they named Skeleton Key that installs itself in the Active Directory and from there can logon as any user. The bad news is it’s almost undetectable at this point, but the good news is it's extremely easy to remove the malware from your computer once it is detected.

It's not all doom and gloom though. The good news is that, in its current form, the malware does not survive a system reboot.
