I'm looking to drop a connection if a website contains a certain word or phrase. The issue is, the site is typically compressed with gzip. Any ideas?

transparent http proxy like squid? –  frostschutz Mar 11 '13 at 3:24

snort knows how to handle compressed HTTP requests and responses. So configuring snort in inline mode and writing rules with file_data before the content keyword would do it.

Do you have a link to a guide or similar? Sounds perfect –  Coffeee Mar 11 '13 at 12:08
