According to Betanews, the newest release of the Malicious Software Removal Tool from Microsoft, which is available through Windows Update, removes the XCP rootkit and the vulnerable ActiveX control from the XCP uninstaller. Microsoft still hasn’t stepped up to the plate to uninstall all of XCP, though; you still have to go to Sony BMG for that. Interesting point in the article about how the lifespan of a DRMed CD is much longer than the lifespan of a particular Windows release, and how that almost certainly dooms the disc to unusability in the future.
