.ecm stands for "Electronic CounterMeasure". This is a fake file distributed by the ESA to combat piracy, you'd best delete it now before it does some damage.

Or see here.

It's an ISO file run through Neil Corlett's ECM program so that it compresses better. Google his name and ECM to find his website, with the programs to ECM and UNECM things.
