As mentionned before in this thread, you definetely can specify junbkbuster

On privoxy (which is an evolution of junkbuster, but present only in sid

I can't remind how config was in junkbuster, but its documented in sample
conf file, and its likely to be the same syntax.
Anyway adding one filtering layer with netfilter is obviously best.
