You say you already block these connections. So why do you ask ?

- If you have a lot of IP addresses : for
creating a set of ip addresses to match
- Use Squid as reverse proxy

You want content filtering and Netfilter is no good for that. You could
use the string match, but if the string you want to match is divided
over 2 (or more) packets, it won't work.
Use Squid as reverse proxy to block something like this.
