best option: run squid, transparently proxy connections to it, block
access to remote proxies by category with squidGuard and a decent
blacklist; or, by restricting HTTP CONNECT method.
create a list of known remote proxies and block access to them via IP
address in netfilter or by black-holing the domains in your DNS server.
use something like l7filter (which i have zero experience with) to block
HTTP CONNECT requests. note that this method is powerless against
remote proxies that use SSL.
