This program was designed to allow users to help out fellow users that are infected with the MSBlast (and variants) worm by sending them a message (via the Windows' Messenger service) telling them that they appear to be infected with MSBlast as their machine attempted to connect to port 135. The message also contains a link for disinfection instructions.
To use this program, you will need a router connected to your machine. You can still use this application without a router for other purposes, for example you could set BlastBack to listen on a common trojan port and have it send back an insulting message to anyone trying to connect to that port. Since v1.10, BlastBack now supports the detection (on the HD and currently running in memory) and removal of the MSBlast worm and its variants.
