I assume that by "ping" you mean BlackBerry Messenger (BBM). Nobody can "hack" your BBM. The only way to compromise your device is if this person knows your password.

I don't know how you block a person from sending you a BBM message. Is it though an aftermarket program, or do you use the built-in features of your BlackBerry?

Delete him as a contact and if he requests to add you again, choose no, then select the option to ignore future requests. If he requests to be a contact again, you will not receive the notification. That will block him.

If you reject a request from someone, you can choose to ignore future requests. That essentially blocks them. They can send requests but you won't see them.

Edit... There are lots of blocking options on BlackBerry.

Ah, looks like the Firewall will block anybody not in your address book if you so choose. Cool!
