I received an interesting piece of feedback over the weekend. A user wanted to let us know that even though he had AVG installed as an antivirus, and runs Spybot (Search & Destroy, presumably), PeerBlock was the only tool that detected that his machine was infected with the Conficker worm!
I'm not sure which list(s) he was using, and we probably only caught it because PeerBlock is a new enough project that the worm creators didn't put in anything to check if we were running (and torch us if so), but that's just neat, and I thought it worth sharing.
Anyone else find any unexpected uses of running an IP-blocker like PeerBlock or PG2?
