I figure if anybody knows of a tool like this, they would probablly be around here. Im looking for a piece of software that basically sniffs every outbound packet for a string, such as a phone number, and either drops the packet or replaces the string within the packet based on its contents. This is a kinda-sorta-firewall but not really. I have been having arguements based on artistic differences with several pieces of software with embedded spyware, eg i believe it shouldnt know what im doing, vs it does. A filter as i outlined above would neuter it completely, and there must be one somewhere. I know the program im looking for is probablly considered spyware, however im only planning on filtering my outbound traffic, more explicitly, outbound traffic i dont want my computer to send. Afterall, im the owner of the stupid computer, if its misbehaving i need to curb this behavior immediately. Suggestions welcome, thanks for your time guys.
