    Dhruv,
            Using iptables/Netfilter for this is the wrong idea for sure. It breaks
    the TCP connection, leaving both ends hanging. It is also very
    susceptible to false positives. You want a real content filter. I use
    DansGuardian (http://www.dansguardian.org/) with DansGuardian Antivirus
    (http://sourceforge.net/projects/dgav/) and ClamAV
    (http://www.clamav.net/) and am happy. The setup is not the easiest, but
    the product works well. Please note that DansGuardian is free for
    non-commercial use, but requires an inexpensive license for businesses.
    Read the licence if in doubt.
