but i did a google search on backdoor.blarul, you get a lot of results in other languages and crap, but here are some links, of people with the same problem they seem to be getting it from edonkey and overnet programs.
Are your virus definitions updated?
This dude did a scan with AVG and cant find it, here is the link Quote :Have you looked in the Virus Vault? It could be that the file was already quarantined by AVG.
Another one translated from spanish
The 1st and 9th review down found the same trojan got it from edonkey, overnet is conected to edonkey right...

Jack. Didn't find jack. Ya sure that you didn't DOWNLOAD the virus? Where did you get the installer from?
I just want proof so you don't defame the name that is Overnet, because I like the program a hell of a lot and we need as many people as we can get to share!

The site seems to be littered with this.blarul problem
Ill look into it in more detail. Here is the forum page
Here is a statment from overnet that there is no back door.
Here is another anocement on the main page.
2.24.04: Virus Hoax
There is no virus or backdoor in Overnet or eDonkey2000. Norton antivirus is incorrectly detecting this. No other virus software is having problems with our exe. We have updated our exe so it no longer sets off Norton.
So as of now, that could be the problem, and its quite possible, that their is no backdoor, or virus, but ill look more into it when i have time.
Just advise to check the forums and other information on the site.
The fourth page of the the of this link states that the if you download overnet, that when you download overnet, it will not set off norton. So i believe that i found this problem at the right place at the right time, as they were fixing it.
