DCOMbobulation

If you’re using Windows, get yourself a copy of DCOMbobulator. It’s a free tool that disables DCOM, which is what MSBlast and its friends use to spread. It should be more effective than patching your system (although you should do that too), since it in effect ‘closes the door’ completely. Probably around 99.9% of users don’t need it running and it will improve your system security.
As with all of Steve Gibson’s tools, it’s small and relatively simple to use, with plenty of help available.
