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.
