From the Microsoft Anti-Malware Engineering Team blog

We have analyzed this software ( Sony DRM Rootkit ), and have determined that in order to help protect our customers we will add a detection and removal signature for the rootkit component of the XCP software to the Windows AntiSpyware beta, which is currently used by millions of users.
